How to keep your Marshall home comfortable this winter

The colder temperatures in Marshall 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 operating well with annual furnace service.

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

If you’ve already scheduled your regular furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays comfortable:

  • Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
  • Weatherstripping — a lot of cold air flows into your home through open doors. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Check your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s gaping or damaged. This easy fix could prevent a lot of cold air from finding its way inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is a common problem with heating your home. They may allow a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can repair 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 warm and cozy.
