Three Tips to Keep Your Katy Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

November 24, 2015

The chillier temperatures in Katy will hang on for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating well with annual furnace service.

You depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable 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 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 cozy:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
  • Weatherstripping — a lot of cold air flows into your home every time an exterior door is opened. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Look at your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked or damaged. There’s a good chance this 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 allow a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can repair 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.
