Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service12/11/2015 With colder weather 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 extends far beyond having annual furnace service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your furnace is doing its. Here are a few that we find particularly helpful here in Zelienople: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean a great deal 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 too. There are a host of fixes that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves. Switch your furnace filter. This is one of the most important things you can do to not only boost your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your energy costs. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can handle it yourself. It’s usually recommended to change your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some may last even longer. Buy plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can likely boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of toxins that are emitted from a variety of common household cleaners, paints and other products. Furnace service. This should be something that you’re already handling, but it never hurts to have a reminder. Having furnace service completed annually helps make sure that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be fixed so your comfort isn’t conceded. It doesn’t have to feel tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
