How to keep your Hamilton home comfortable this winter11/24/2015 The chillier temperatures in Hamilton will be here 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 routine furnace service. You count 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 comfortable throughout the winter. If you’ve already scheduled your routine furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays warm: Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will perform 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 lot of cold air flows into your home when doors are open. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Check 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 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 will help a lot, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home warm and cozy.
