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

The chillier temperatures in Winnipeg will be here for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable throughout 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 each 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 taken care of your annual furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays warm:

  • Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas leak hot or cold air.
  • Weatherstripping — a great deal 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 worn out or damaged. This easy fix could block a lot of cold air from finding its way inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. They may let a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
