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

The plummeting temperatures in Grand Prairie aren’t leaving, and while it’s simple to dream about the warmer temperatures, it’s important to remember that you can remain just as comfortable during winter. Of course, your furnace plays a big role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to complete annual furnace service.

We do have to mention that there are only a couple things that will provide as much to your comfort this year as a well-tuned furnace. That’s why furnace service should be completed annually. After all, who wants to spend a frigid winter not knowing if their furnace is going to keep them comfortable the entire time?

Already complete your annual furnace service? Here are a few other jobs you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

  • Energy audit — many energy companies will offer an energy audit for your home so you can identify areas that need addressed. You could be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to get out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors allow the opportunity for a lot of cold air to make it’s way inside your home. However, when your door is shut, you can still have air making its way inside. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in-tact or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be permitting cold air inside. If you uncover any problems, weatherstripping is basic to switch out and could take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common culprits for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they may be letting all the hot air in your home escape through your ceiling. Fixing this is as basic as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

These couple of tips are just the beginning, but do note that there are other simple fixes you can handle once you’ve had annual furnace service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy things to do on the weekend.
