How To Keep Your House Warm During The Winter

December 13, 2022 | Blog

Nothing is better than coming home to a warm house after a cold day. While cuddling up with loved ones and warm drinks are on your mind, you don’t want to be interrupted because your inside temperature is too cold to enjoy. Your heater may have become less efficient with time, and it can have some huge effects on how you enjoy the colder seasons. If you’re looking for some heater solutions in Houma, look no further than Trahan’s Heating and Air Conditioning! We have easy solutions that will warm you up in no time!

Warming a house when it is already cold can be difficult. However, it is in no way impossible. If you have an older unit, there may be a greater strain on your unit when heating your house, making it more expensive. To make your house infinitely warmer this winter, it may be time to look at new furnaces with better efficiency and solutions.

Find Effective Heating Solutions

There are a lot of reasons that your house may be staying cold. Specifically, looking at the placement of your furnace can make a world of difference in how it heats your house. Whenever you have large and heavy furniture, such as couches, blocking key vents, the heat won’t dissipate. This makes the air chilly in the house.

Finding solutions to your heating problem can be as easy as finding out where the ducts are in your house to maximize the amount of heat that you have. Older units may put out less air than originally intended, but keeping vent areas clear can make a house warmer right off the bat. However, if you’re noticing rising bills and a lack of heat, there could be a bigger problem.

Research Your Homes Energy Efficiency

Looking at the efficiency of your home is a key way to keep costs down and the heat up. Older models of furnaces and heaters will have different standards and regulations on them. As the rest of your house modernizes, your furnace doesn’t catch up. Using standardized methods such as SEER, we can determine if your home’s energy efficiency is too low to keep your house warm.

SEER is an efficiency ratio that measures the amount of heat being put out in a unit versus the amount of energy used. The United States Department Of Energy placed a minimum seer rating of 14, meaning those under were made before that specification was announced. If your furnace operates under a 12 rating, you could lose a lot of money and warmth!

Look Into Furnace Replacement

One of the biggest causes of a cold house is a furnace that won’t work properly. Furnaces generate heat that spreads through the vent systems in your house. If your system is old, needs constant repair and has a funny smell, it’s time to look into a furnace replacement and installment.

Many local AC companies will gladly install a new furnace at an affordable price, all while catching you up on the newest technology. In an increasingly modern world, you should modernize your HVAC services too!
