The coldest temperatures in Laguna Niguel will hang on for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with regular furnace service.

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

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

  • Weatherstripping — a large amount 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 gaping or damaged. This easy fix 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 let a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
