Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunshine, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a cozy place to be. That spreads far beyond doing annual furnace service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your furnace is operating at its peak.

Here are four that we find especially helpful here in Plainfield:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean a lot of air is sneaking out of your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside too. There are various options that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively basic fixes for homeowners to handle themselves.
  • Switch your furnace filter. This is one of the most critical things you can do to not only boost your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you money. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can do it yourself. It’s usually recommended to switch your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some can last even longer.
  • Get plants. Indoor plants can offer a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they could potentially boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of pollutants that are emitted from various common household cleaners, paints and other products.
  • Furnace service. This should be something that you’re already taking care of, but it never hurts to have 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. Feel free to give us a call at 815-410-1231 to hear about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
