4 Tips to Get Your Home Ready for Winter

November 14, 2019 | Blog

In Texas, it can seem like there are only two real seasons: “Really Hot” and “Really Cold.” As we get closer to the “Really Cold” portion of the year, it’s important to make sure that your home is prepared for those nights when it drops below freezing. Below are a few tips you can follow to keep your home at the perfect temperature, all year long.

1. Test Out Your Heater

You don’t want to realize your heater doesn’t actually work when you need it most. Once you notice the temperatures begin to drop, fire up the heater a couple times to be certain that there are no issues or repairs you, or an HVAC repairman, need to take care of before winter hits.

2. Insulate, Insulate, Insulate!

Save money on heating bills by ensuring that none of your heat is escaping through poorly insulated doors and windows. You can replace your windows with specially insulated storm windows or caulk around your current ones.

3. Pay Attention to Your Trees

That doesn’t mean give every tree on your lot a good hug (though who are we to stop you?). What we actually mean is it’s wise to take a look at any branches that hang just a little too close to your roof and get them removed. Snow in Texas is rare, but it’s not unheard of. One particularly heavy snowfall or an extra windy storm, and you could have a new… skylight in your living room ceiling.

4. Consider Investing in a Generator

If you’ve suffered through week-long power outages in your home due to bad weather before, you should probably think about getting a generator. You can find affordable generators on Amazon, but be careful where you run it! Generators make a lot of noise, and you don’t want to end up with angry neighbors.

Even with all these preventative measures, it is still possible to have your heater give out during these upcoming, cold winter months. If that happens, you can always call on the HVAC repairmen at Go Green Heating & Cooling. Call or visit our website today for a free estimate.

Professional and Honest

After receiving a ridiculously high quote from the HVAC company sent out by our home warranty, my husband wanted a second opinion. Our technician Mike was thorough and honest about what needed repair. Not only was the diagnosis much simpler, so was the price. Mike got the repair done quickly and was very professional. We’ll definitely be calling Go Green again.
