Maintaining your home warm during the Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas winters is crucial to your health and comfort. While you may not be able to completely ignore the lowering temperature outside, there are routes that your comfort can be attained effortlessly and without fretting about cold drafts. With annually scheduled furnace service, you can help keep all the heat from your furnace within your home and save money on your monthly energy bills. It’s valuable to know all the ways in which heat (and your winter comfort) can escape from your home, so here are some of the normal forms we usually see at Innovative Mechanical, LLC:

  1. Lack of attic insulation – the older the home, the more out-of-date the insulation might be. Older insulation can fade more rapidly and cause those leakages of heat, which could then mean that your furnace is working harder than it should. Inspecting your insulation in your attic to see if it is installed accurately can tell you if you need more insulation and dodge impending future furnace repair.

  2. Window or door gaps – breaks or holes aren’t always apparent to the naked eye or large enough to feel cold drafts through, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t there. Weatherstripping can be an quick fix and can do the same thing as enhancing attic insulation – preparing your furnace to not work as hard and decreasing the probability of needing furnace repair.

  3. Losing heat from the glass of your windows – hot air and cold glass are an interesting mix. The hot air drops some of its heat when it reaches a cold surface and exudes the feeling of “heat escaping” from the home. Shutting window drapes through the evening hours and pulling back drapes during sunny, daylight hours in the winter can help decrease this heat loss.

While these might not be the only causes of why your home is using up heat, there is a good possibility that one of these circumstances could be your reality. But lucky for you, our experts at Innovative Mechanical, LLC are here to offer you with more advice to keep your home warm and comfortable all through the winter.
