Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

December 11, 2015

Days are shorter and colder and it is hard to keep your home comfortable and toasty. We’ve got some tips that can help aside from completing annual furnace service. These tips will boost the comfort your furnace provides.

Here are four tips for staying cozy this winter in Monroe:

  • Seal air leaks. A lot of warm air escapes your home through cracks around your windows and doors. This can be a costly problem when it comes to your utility bill. The good news is it’s not costly to fix it. Generally, new weatherstripping or caulking is all it takes.
  • Change your furnace filter. •This is imperative to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving money. The best part is that it’s really easy to do yourself. Look at your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
  • Get plants. Houseplants are great because they look attractive, and they can actually boost your indoor air quality. Certain common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from ordinary household cleaners, paints and other products.
  • Furnace service. You should schedule regular furnace service yearly. This will ensure your furnace is working correctly, and if it’s not, find problem areas before they escalate.
