Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service12/11/2015 With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunshine, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That spreads far beyond completing annual furnace service too, because there are a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your furnace is running at its best. Here are four that we find very helpful here in San Angelo: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a lot of air is leaving your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside too. There are various choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves. Swap your furnace filter. This is one of the most critical things you can do to not only boost 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 handle it yourself. It’s normally recommended to swap your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some can last even longer. Buy plants. Indoor plants can provide a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can possibly improve 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 doing, but it never hurts to receive 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 handled so your comfort isn’t compromised. It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
