How to keep your Phoenix home comfortable this winter11/24/2015 The chillier temperatures in Phoenix will be here for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with routine furnace service. You count 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 throughout the winter. If you’ve already taken care of your regular furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays comfortable: Have an energy audit — quite a few 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 comes 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 cracked or damaged. There’s a good chance this could prevent a lot of cold air from slipping 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 rectify 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.
