The coldest temperatures in Los Angeles will be here for a while. You may be wishing for 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 cozy 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 comfortable no matter how cold the winter gets.
If you’ve already taken care of your regular furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays comfortable:
- Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas leak hot or cold air.
- Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air enters 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 gaping or damaged. This simple task could prevent a lot of cold air from making its way inside your home.
- Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. They may permit a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can fix this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
These tips are a good starting point, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home warm and comfortable. Or, give the experts at AZ Air Conditioning and Heating a call at 800-296-5088 and we can help with that and schedule your annual furnace service if you haven’t done so yet.
