Three Tips to Keep Your Bossier City Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

The colder temperatures in Bossier City will be here for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with annual furnace service.

You rely on your furnace to keep you comfortable in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service every single year. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you warm all winter long.

If you’ve already scheduled your annual furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays cozy:

  • Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will do an energy audit on your home to help you identify 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 when doors are open. 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 cracked or damaged. This easy fix could stop 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 allow 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.
