Winter in Mountains near Las Cruces, NM

Ah, winter. The time to snuggle up with something hot to drink, a warm blanket, and your favorite book or movie. You can make this cozy time even better with a few adjustments to prime your home for cooler temperatures.

Use a Humidifier

New homeowners in Southern New Mexico know that the warm, desert climate in towns like Alamogordo and Las Cruces guarantees good weather nearly year round. The winters, while mild, can be chilly and dry. Using a humidifier in your home is a great way to help relieve dry eyes, itchy nose and skin

Reverse Your Ceiling Fans

Changing the direction of your ceiling fans to clockwise pulls cool air up to your ceiling. This, in turn, pushes warm air that has gathered back down to the living areas of your home.

Check Your Batteries

Now go enjoy all that winter has to offer!
