How to keep your Tomball home comfortable this winter

Heating

The plummeting temperatures in Tomball aren’t leaving, and while it’s not hard to daydream about the warmer temps, it’s critical to remember that you can stay just as comfortable during winter. Of course, your furnace plays a huge role in this, which is why it’s so important to complete annual furnace service.

We do have to bring up the fact that there aren’t many things that will contribute as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned furnace. That’s why furnace service is suggested to be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend a long winter not knowing if their furnace is going to keep them warm the whole time?

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

  • Energy audit — most energy companies will offer an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need fixed. You could be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to escape.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, doors permit the opportunity for a lot of cold air to get in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you could 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 letting cold air inside. If you notice any issues, weatherstripping is basic to switch out and could take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on the age of your lights, they could be letting all the hot air in your home sneak out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as easy as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

These handful tips are just a place to start, but do recognize 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 projects to accomplish on the weekend.
