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 beyond completing annual furnace service. These tips will enhance the comfort your furnace provides.

Here are four tips for staying comfy this winter in Marshalltown:

  • Seal air leaks. A great deal of warm air escapes your home through small cracks around your windows and doors. This can be a costly problem when it comes to your utility bill. Luckily, it’s not costly to fix it. Most times, new weatherstripping or caulking is all it takes.
  • Change your furnace filter. •This is crucial to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving you some money. What’s more is that it’s super easy to do yourself. Look at your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
  • Get plants. Houseplants are a perfect addition to your home because they look attractive, and they can actually enhance your indoor air quality. A lot of common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from everyday household cleaners, paints and other products.
  • Furnace service. You should schedule regular furnace service every year. This will ensure your furnace is working properly, and if it’s not, discover problem areas before they escalate.
