How to keep your Colorado Springs home comfortable this winter11/24/2015 The chillier temperatures in Colorado Springs 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 operating 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 annually. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you comfortable all winter long. If you’ve already had your routine furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays comfortable: Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home. Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air comes into 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 worn out or damaged. This easy fix could stop a lot of cold air from finding 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 repair 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 comfy and cozy.
