How to keep your Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area home comfortable this winter

The coldest temperatures in Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area 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 count 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 comfortable all winter long.

If you’ve already had your annual furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to make sure 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. You’d be surprised how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
  • Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air comes into your home through open doors. 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. This easy fix 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.
