It is time to begin winterizing in Dallas and Fort Worth. We all know the temperatures can be cold one day and back to 80° in less than 24 hours. Here are a few reminders from Charlie to help keep you warm and protect your house:
Keeping it Warm Inside
- Check your door frames for any air gaps. A new door sweep and weather stripping can be easy to install and will help keep the cold air out. You can even make a draft preventer with an old beach towel twirled up at the base of the door.
- Air handler filters also need to be changed just as frequent during the cold months as the summer. Also, try turning on your heater and testing before you really need it. If you get a small burning smell for a short period of time it is fine. You will need to call a professional (Enoch Electric, Water, & Air) if the smell continues longer than a couple of minutes.
