The days are starting to get shorter and colder and it feels impossible to keep your home comfortable and toasty. We’ve got some tips that can help aside from completing annual furnace service. These tips will enhance the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfortable this winter in Wharton:
- 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 imperative to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore helping you save money. The best part 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 boost 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 properly, and if it’s not, discover problem areas before they get worse.
