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 sunshine, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a cozy place to be. That goes 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 four that we find especially helpful here in Dallas: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a lot of air is leaving your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside as well. There are various options that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty simple fixes for homeowners to handle themselves. Change your furnace filter. This is one of the most important things you can do to not only increase 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 do it yourself. It’s normally recommended to swap your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some could last even longer. Buy plants. Indoor plants can provide a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they could potentially boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of contaminants 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 receive a reminder. Having furnace service completed annually helps you be 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.
