Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service12/11/2015 With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunshine, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That goes far beyond completing annual furnace service too, because there are a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your furnace is doing its. Here are a few that we find especially helpful here in York: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean a lot of air is leaving your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside also. There are a variety of choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly simple fixes for homeowners to do themselves. Swap your furnace filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only improve 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 handle it yourself. It’s normally recommended to switch your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some could last even longer. Add plants. Indoor plants can provide a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they may possibly better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number 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 handling, but it never hurts to get 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 addressed so your comfort isn’t conceded. It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
