How to keep your Denver home comfortable this winter

The colder temperatures in Denver will be here for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating well with annual furnace service.

You rely 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 throughout the winter.

If you’ve already scheduled your annual furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays cozy:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
  • 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? Inspect your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s worn out 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 let a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can fix this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
