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

The chillier temperatures in Winnipeg are here to stay for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working 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 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, here are some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays warm:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will complete 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 escape.
  • 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? Inspect your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked or damaged. This easy fix could block a lot of cold air from making its way inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. 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.

Use these tips as a starting point, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home comfy and cozy.
