You’ve probably noticed the days are getting 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 complement the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying cozy this winter in Plainfield:
- Seal air leaks. So much warm air escapes your home through small cracks around your windows and doors. This can be pricey problem when you look at your utility bill. Fortunately, it’s not costly to fix it. Most times, new weatherstripping or caulking will do the job.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is important to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving money. The best part is that it’s incredibly easy to do yourself. Check 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 ordinary household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Furnace service. You should arrange regular furnace service yearly. This will ensure your furnace is working correctly, and if it’s not, identify problem areas before they escalate.
