Three Tips to Keep Your Paso Robles Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

November 24, 2015

The chillier temperatures in Paso Robles will be here for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with routine furnace service.

You depend on your furnace to keep you cozy in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service annually. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you comfortable throughout the winter.

If you’ve already had your regular furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays comfortable:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. You’d be surprised how many areas leak hot or cold air.
  • Weatherstripping — a lot of cold air enters your home when doors are open. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Look at your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked or damaged. This simple task could stop a lot of cold air from slipping inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. They may permit a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.

These tips will help a lot, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home comfy and cozy.
