Three Tips to Keep Your Grand Prairie Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

November 24, 2015

The chillier temperatures in Grand Prairie will be here for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating well with routine furnace service.

You rely on your furnace to keep you cozy 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 warm throughout the winter.

If you’ve already scheduled your annual furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays cozy:

  • Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
  • Weatherstripping — a lot of cold air comes into 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. There’s a good chance this could stop 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 permit a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can fix 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.
