How to keep your Lexington home comfortable this winter

Heating

The colder temperatures in Lexington are here to stay for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with routine furnace service.

You rely on your furnace to keep you comfortable 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 scheduled your regular furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays cozy:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few 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 escape.
  • Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air comes 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? Look at your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s worn out or damaged. This easy fix could stop a lot of cold air from slipping inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is a common problem with heating your home. They may permit a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can fix this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.

Use these tips as a starting point, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home comfy and cozy.
