How to keep your Dallas home comfortable this winter11/24/2015 The coldest temperatures in Dallas will be here for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with annual furnace service. You depend on your furnace to keep you warm in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service each year. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you warm throughout the winter. If you’ve already taken care of your annual furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays comfortable: Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will do an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas let hot or cold air escape. Weatherstripping — a large amount 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 worn out or damaged. This easy fix could block a lot of cold air from making its way inside your home. Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. They may permit a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can fix this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape. These tips are a good starting point, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home comfy and cozy.
