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

The chillier temperatures in Alice will hang on for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with regular furnace service.

You depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service annually. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you warm throughout the winter.

If you’ve already scheduled your routine furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays warm:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will perform 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 lot of cold air comes 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? Inspect your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked or damaged. There’s a good chance this could prevent a lot of cold air from finding its way inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is often makes home heating a bigger challenge. 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.
