Three Tips to Keep Your Las Vegas Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

The dropping temperatures in Las Vegas aren’t leaving, and while it’s simple to daydream about the warmer weather, it’s crucial to remember that you can continue to be just as comfortable during winter. Of course, your furnace plays a huge role in this, which is why it’s so important to schedule annual furnace service.

We do have to note that there are only a couple things that will provide as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned furnace. That’s why furnace service is suggested to be completed annually. After all, who wants to spend a long winter not knowing if their furnace is going to keep them comfortable the whole time?

Already done with your annual furnace service? Here are a couple other tasks you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

  • Energy audit — most energy companies will provide an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need fixed. You may be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to sneak out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors offer the opportunity for a lot of cold air to make it’s way inside your home. However, when your door is shut, you could still have air making its way indoors. Check to see if your weatherstripping is all good or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be allowing cold air inside. If you find any issues, weatherstripping is simple to swap and may take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they could be letting all the hot air in your home get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as basic as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

These couple of tips are just a place to start, but do recognize that there are other basic fixes you can handle once you’ve had annual furnace service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy projects to complete on the weekend.
