How to keep your Pacheco home comfortable this winter11/24/2015 The coldest temperatures in Pacheco will be here for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working 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 annually. 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 taken care of your regular furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays comfortable: Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas leak hot or cold air. Weatherstripping — a lot 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 cracked or damaged. This simple task could stop a lot of cold air from slipping 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 repair 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 warm and cozy.
