Three Tips to Keep Your Bartlesville Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

November 24, 2015

The chillier temperatures in Bartlesville will hang on for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating well with annual furnace service.

You depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service each year. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you warm all winter long.

If you’ve already taken care of your routine furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays cozy:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. You’d be surprised how many areas leak hot or cold air.
  • Weatherstripping — a great deal 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? Check your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked or damaged. This easy fix could block a lot of cold air from making its way inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is a common problem with heating your home. They may let a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can rectify 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.
