3 Ways to Prepare Your Home for Cooler Weather

The temperature is cooling down outside. What are you doing to prepare your Burleson, Texas, home for the winter weather? Keep reading to learn how you can best prepare your home for cooler temperatures and save on heating energy throughout the winter.

Seal the Windows and Doors

A great way to prepare for the colder weather is by checking the seal on the outside doors and windows throughout your home. You can add caulk around your windows and weatherstripping and door sweeps to the doors. Sealing your windows and doors is something you can easily perform yourself and helps to reduce air loss throughout your home. A well-sealed home ultimately helps your heating system run smoothly and efficiently. As a result, it won’t break down as often or require costly repairs.

Maintain the Fireplace

If your home has a fireplace, inspect it before you use it the first time this season. Check inside the chimney for black soot, cracks, critters and any flammable objects. A chimney sweep can ensure your fireplace is safe and ready to use during the colder weather. After using your fireplace, remember to close the chimney’s damper after it has cooled. The damper will help reduce air loss, keeping the warm air in and cold air out.

Check the Furnace

Before the weather gets too cold, you’ll want to have your furnace professionally inspected to spot any issues early to avoid a costly breakdown in the middle of the winter. Now’s also the time to change out your furnace’s air filter, especially if your air conditioner and furnace use the same air handler. A clean air filter will improve airflow, thus helping your system run efficiently. While you can change out the filter yourself, leave any furnace repairs to an HVAC specialist.
