How to keep your Rock Hill home comfortable this winter11/24/2015 The coldest temperatures in Rock Hill will hang on 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 operating well with routine furnace service. You count on your furnace to keep you comfortable 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 comfortable all winter long. If you’ve already had your regular furnace service this year, we have 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 identify areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas let hot or cold air escape. Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air enters your home through open doors. 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 simple task could block a lot of cold air from slipping inside your home. Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. They may permit a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape. These tips will help a lot, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home warm and cozy. Or, give the experts at US Air Heating and Cooling a call at 803-980-4328 and we can help with that and schedule your annual furnace service if you haven’t yet.
