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

November 24, 2015

The chillier temperatures in Chatsworth are here to stay for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating well with annual furnace service.

You count on your furnace to keep you cozy 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 routine furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays cozy:

  • Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will do an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. You’d be surprised how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
  • Weatherstripping — a lot of cold air flows into your home every time an exterior door is opened. 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 repair this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
