Days are shorter and colder and it is hard to keep your home comfortable and cozy. We’ve got some tips that can help in addition to completing annual furnace service. These tips will enhance the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfy this winter in Crystal and Twin Cities:
- Seal air leaks. A lot of warm air escapes your home through gaps around your windows and doors. This can be pricey problem when it’s time to pay your utility bill. Luckily, it’s not costly to fix it. Most times, new weatherstripping or caulking will fix the problem.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is crucial to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving you some money. What’s even better is that it’s incredibly easy to do yourself. Look at your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
- Get plants. Houseplants are good to have because they look nice, and they can actually enhance your indoor air quality. Many common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from ordinary household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Furnace service. You should arrange regular furnace service every year. This will ensure your furnace is working as it should, and if it’s not, identify problem areas before they get worse.
