Three Tips to Keep Your Holdrege Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

The dropping temperatures in Holdrege aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s easy to daydream about the warmer temps, it’s critical to remember that you can continue to be just as comfortable during winter. Of course, your furnace plays a huge role in this, which is why it’s so important to schedule annual furnace service.

We do have to note that there are only a couple things that will offer as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned furnace. That’s why furnace service is suggested to be done annually. After all, who wants to spend a long winter not knowing if their furnace is going to keep them comfortable the entire season?

Already complete your annual furnace service? Here are a few other jobs you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

  • Energy audit — most energy companies will offer an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need improving. You could be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to sneak out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, doors offer the opportunity for a lot of cold air to get in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you may still have air making its way in your home. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in-tact or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be letting cold air inside. If you find any problems, weatherstripping is easy to replace and may take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common culprits for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they might be letting all the hot air in your home escape through your ceiling. Fixing this is as basic as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

These handful tips are just a starting point, but do realize that there are other easy fixes you can complete once you’ve had annual furnace service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy projects to complete on the weekend.
