How to keep your Groves home comfortable this winter11/24/2015 The chillier temperatures in Groves will hang on 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 routine furnace service. You count 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 cozy no matter how cold the winter gets. If you’ve already had your routine furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays comfortable: Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. You’d be surprised how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home. Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air enters your home through open doors. 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. There’s a good chance this could stop 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 allow a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can rectify 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 warm and comfortable. Or, give the experts at Air Solutions, Inc a call at 409-962-2476 to get more tips and schedule your annual furnace service if you haven’t already. You can also make an appointment with us online.
