Cooler Temperatures Heading for the Lone Star State

Getting your home ready for the fall and winter seasons.


Fall_ducksWith September just around the corner and these cooler than usual August temperatures, many of us have begun to daydream about the joys that fall can bring, including pumpkin-flavored everything, football season, cozy scarves, fall foliage and the return of our favorite TV shows.

Although many of us in Texas don’t experience the fall and winter temperatures the way our neighbors to the north might, now is the time to start preparing your home for the cooler months ahead. There are many small changes that you can implement to get ready including:

  • ThermostatAdding weatherstripping to prevent air leaks and drafts
  • Checking your HVAC for efficiency and changing your air filter
  • Covering windows with curtains to further minimize heat loss
  • Testing your home safety devices including smoke detectors, fire extinguishers and carbon monoxide devices and
  • Updating your home with a smart thermostat to better control your electricity use.

These small changes can not only make an impact on your home’s electricity bill, but can make the fall and winter seasons even more enjoyable.
