Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

December 11, 2015

Days are shorter and colder and it feels impossible to keep your home comfortable and cozy. We’ve got a collection of tips that can help in addition to completing annual furnace service. These tips will boost the comfort your furnace provides.

Here are four tips for staying comfortable this winter in Lawrence:

  • Seal air leaks. A great deal of warm air escapes your home through cracks around your windows and doors. This can be a costly problem when it’s time to pay your utility bill. The good news is 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 helping you save 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 good to have because they look pretty, and they can actually enhance your indoor air quality. Many common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from common household cleaners, paints and other products.
  • Furnace service. You should schedule regular furnace service annually. This will ensure your furnace is working as it should, and if it’s not, find problem areas before they escalate.
