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

The colder temperatures in Denton will hang on for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with routine 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 comfortable throughout the winter.

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

  • Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will perform 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 great deal of cold air enters 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 gaping or damaged. There’s a good chance this 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 allow a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can repair this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.

Use these tips as a starting point, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home comfy and cozy.
