Three Tips to Keep Your Royse City Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

The plummeting temperatures in Royse City aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s easy to fantasize about the warmer weather, 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 crucial to schedule 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 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 covered the entire time?

Already done with your annual furnace service? Here are a couple other tasks 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 improving. You might be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to sneak out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors offer the opportunity for a lot of cold air to make it’s way inside your home. However, when your door is shut, you may still have air making its way indoors. Check to see if your weatherstripping is all good or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be permitting cold air inside. If you uncover any concerns, weatherstripping is easy to swap and can take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common culprits for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they may be letting all the hot air in your home get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

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