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

The colder temperatures in Omaha are here to stay for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you are able to 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 comfortable in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service annually. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you cozy all winter long.

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 — 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 shocking how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
  • Weatherstripping — a lot of cold air enters your home through open doors. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Check your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s worn out or damaged. This simple task could prevent 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 allow a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can repair 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.
