Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service12/11/2015 With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunlight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That goes far beyond completing annual furnace service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your furnace is doing its. Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Chadron: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean quite a bit of air is leaving your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside also. There are a host of choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively simple fixes for homeowners to do themselves. Change your furnace filter. This is one of the most critical things you can do to not only improve your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you money. 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 switch your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some could last even longer. Get plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they could likely better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of pollutants 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 get a reminder. Having furnace service performed annually helps make sure that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be handled so your comfort isn’t compromised. It doesn’t have to feel tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
