The coldest temperatures in Manassas are here to stay for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with regular furnace service.

You rely 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 warm no matter how cold the winter gets.

If you’ve already scheduled your regular furnace service this year, here are 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. You’d be surprised 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 worn out or damaged. This simple task could prevent a lot of cold air from making its way inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is often makes home heating a bigger challenge. 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.
