How to keep your Bountiful home comfortable this winter

The chillier temperatures in Bountiful will hang on 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 running 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 annually. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you cozy throughout the winter.

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 cozy:

  • Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will perform 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 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 worn out or damaged. This easy fix could prevent a lot of cold air from slipping inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is a common problem with heating your home. They may allow a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.

These tips are a good starting point, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home warm and comfortable.
