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

November 24, 2015

The coldest temperatures in Franklin are here to stay for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating well with regular furnace service.

You count 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 cozy no matter how cold the winter gets.

If you’ve already scheduled your regular furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays warm:

  • Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
  • Weatherstripping — a large amount 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 cracked or damaged. This simple task could block a lot of cold air from making its way 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 warm and cozy.
