The coldest temperatures in Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas are here to stay 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 operating well with routine furnace service.

You depend on your furnace to keep you cozy 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 had your regular furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays cozy:

  • Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
  • Weatherstripping — a lot 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? Look at your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s gaping or damaged. There’s a good chance this could stop a lot of cold air from slipping 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.
