How to keep your Greenville home comfortable this winter

Heating

The chillier temperatures in Greenville will be here for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with routine 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 no matter how cold the winter gets.

If you’ve already scheduled your regular 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 perform an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
  • Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air enters your home every time an exterior door is opened. 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 gaping or damaged. There’s a good chance this could stop a lot of cold air from finding its way 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 cozy.
