How to keep your New Castle home comfortable this winter

Heating

The colder temperatures in New Castle will be here for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with regular furnace service.

You count on your furnace to keep you warm 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 warm all winter long.

If you’ve already taken care of your regular furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays comfortable:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
  • Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air enters your home when doors are open. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Inspect your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked or damaged. This simple task could block a lot of cold air from finding 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 rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.

These tips will help a lot, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home warm and cozy. Or, give the experts at Central Heating & Plumbing a call at 724-658-7111 for more ideas and schedule your annual furnace service if you haven’t yet. You can also make an appointment with us online.
