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

The plummeting temperatures in Tomball aren’t leaving, and while it’s easy to daydream about the warmer temps, it’s critical to remember that you can remain 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 are few things that will contribute as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned furnace. That’s why furnace service should be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend a cold winter not knowing if their furnace is going to keep them warm the entire time?

Already complete your annual furnace service? Here are a couple 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 find areas that need fixed. You could be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to get out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors permit the opportunity for a lot of cold air to get in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you can still have air making its way indoors. 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 can take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, 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 realize that there are other easy fixes you can handle once you’ve had annual furnace service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy jobs to accomplish on the weekend.
