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

The chillier temperatures in Libertyville will hang on for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with routine furnace service.

You rely on your furnace to keep you warm 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, we have some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays comfortable:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will perform 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 large amount of cold air comes into your home when doors are open. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Inspect your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s worn out or damaged. This easy fix could block a lot of cold air from making its way 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 repair 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 comfortable.
