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

November 24, 2015

The chillier temperatures in Ronkonkoma are here to stay for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with regular furnace service.

You depend on your furnace to keep you cozy 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, here are some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays comfortable:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will do an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
  • Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air enters 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 cracked or damaged. There’s a good chance this could prevent a lot of cold air from slipping 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.
