Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service12/11/2015 With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any daylight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That goes far beyond doing annual furnace service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your furnace is operating at its peak. Here are four that we find particularly helpful here in Selbyville: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean quite a bit of air is sneaking out of your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside also. There are a variety of choices that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic fixes for homeowners to handle themselves. Change your furnace filter. This is one of the most important things you can do to not only improve your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your bills. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can take care of it yourself. It’s typically recommended to change your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some can last even longer. Add plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they can potentially boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of contaminants that are emitted from various common household cleaners, paints and other products. Furnace service. This should be something that you’re already handling, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having furnace service performed annually helps you make certain that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be fixed so your comfort isn’t compromised. It doesn’t have to feel tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
