Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service12/11/2015With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunlight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That spreads far beyond having annual furnace service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your furnace is doing its. Here are a few that we find particularly helpful here in West Valley: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a lot of air is leaving your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside too. There are a variety of fixes that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty basic fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves. Change your furnace filter. This is one of the most important things you can do to not only increase 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 take care of it yourself. It’s typically recommended to switch your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some can last even longer. Get plants. Indoor plants can provide a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they could potentially improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of contaminants that are emitted from a host of 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 make certain 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 hard to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
