How to keep your Bloomington home comfortable this winter

The colder temperatures in Bloomington will be here for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with routine furnace service.

You rely 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 taken care of your routine furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays cozy:

  • Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will do 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 large amount of cold air comes into your home when doors are open. 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. This easy fix could prevent a lot of cold air from slipping 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 repair this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
