How to keep your Corpus Christi home comfortable this winter

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

You rely on your furnace to keep you warm 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 comfortable all winter long.

If you’ve already taken care of your annual furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays comfortable:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
  • Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air flows into your home through open doors. 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 stop a lot of cold air from making its way inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is a common problem with heating your home. They may let 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 comfy and cozy.
