How to keep your Humble home comfortable this winter11/24/2015 The colder temperatures in Humble 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 routine furnace service. You rely on your furnace to keep you cozy 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 throughout the winter. If you’ve already scheduled your regular furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays comfortable: Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will perform 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 escape. Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air comes into your home through open doors. 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 worn out or damaged. This simple task could prevent 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 warm and comfortable.
