How to keep your Saint Louis home comfortable this winter

The coldest temperatures in Saint Louis 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 regular furnace service.

You rely on your furnace to keep you comfortable 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 cozy no matter how cold the winter gets.

If you’ve already had your regular furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays warm:

  • Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
  • Weatherstripping — a lot 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? Look at your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked or damaged. There’s a good chance this 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 fix this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
