Days are shorter and colder and it seems difficult to keep your home comfortable and cozy. We’ve got a collection of tips that can help in addition to completing annual furnace service. These tips will boost the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfortable this winter in the Rio Grande Valley:
- Seal air leaks. A lot of warm air escapes your home through cracks around your windows and doors. This can be pricey problem when you look at your utility bill. The good news is it’s not costly to fix it. Generally, new weatherstripping or caulking will do the job.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is important to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving you some money. What’s more is that it’s really 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 nice, 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 arrange regular furnace service yearly. This will ensure your furnace is working properly, and if it’s not, find problem areas before they worsen.
