Having your home warm through the East Bernard winters is critical to your health and comfort. While you may not be able to entirely ignore the decreasing temperature outside, there are methods that your comfort can be achieved effortlessly and without concern about cold drafts. With regularly scheduled furnace service, you can help keep all the heat from your furnace inside your home and save money on your monthly energy bills. It’s valuable to be able to identify all the ways in which heat (and your winter comfort) can leak from your home, so here are some of the usual forms we catch at E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service:

  1. Lack of attic insulation – the older the home, the more outdated the insulation might be. Older insulation can fade faster and cause those seepages of heat, which could then mean that your furnace is operating harder than it should. Checking your insulation in your attic to see if it is installed accurately can demonstrate if you need more insulation and avoid possible future furnace repair.

  2. Window or door gaps – gaps or holes aren’t always noticeable to the naked eye or great enough to feel cold drafts through, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t present. Weatherstripping can be an quick fix and can do the same thing as increasing attic insulation – making your furnace to not work as hard and reducing the probability of needing furnace repair.

  3. Losing heat from the glass of your windows – hot air and cold glass are a fascinating mix. The hot air drops some of its heat when it extends to a cold surface and gives off the feeling of “heat escaping” from the home. Closing window drapes through the evening hours and pulling back drapes during bright, daylight hours in the winter can help lessen this heat loss.

While these might not be the only reasons why your home is losing heat, there is a good probability that one of these situations could be your reality. But lucky for you, our experts at E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service are here to offer you with more tricks to keep your home warm and comfortable all winter-long.
