How to keep your Hauppauge home comfortable this winter11/24/2015 The coldest temperatures in Hauppauge will hang on for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running 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 each year. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you cozy no matter how cold the winter gets. If you’ve already had your regular furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays warm: Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas leak hot or cold air. Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air flows 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 gaping or damaged. There’s a good chance this could stop 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 allow a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can fix 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 comfy and cozy.
