The dipping temperatures in Tucson aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s simple to daydream about the warmer temperatures, it’s crucial to remember that you can stay just as comfortable during winter. Of course, your furnace plays a huge role in this, which is why it’s so important to keep up with annual furnace service.
We do have to mention that there are only a couple things that will contribute as much to your comfort this year as a well-tuned furnace. That’s why furnace service is suggested to be completed annually. After all, who wants to spend a long winter not knowing if their furnace is going to keep them comfortable the entire season?
Already check off your annual furnace service? Here are a couple other jobs you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — many energy companies will provide an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need addressed. You may be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to get out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors offer the opportunity for a lot of cold air to make it’s way inside your home. However, when your door is shut, you may still have air making its way indoors. Check to see if your weatherstripping is all good or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be permitting cold air inside. If you find any concerns, weatherstripping is easy to replace and could take care of the problem.
