Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunshine, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a cozy place to be. That goes far beyond having annual furnace service too, because there are a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your furnace is running at its best.

Here are a few that we find especially helpful here in Savage:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can 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 heading outside too. There are a host of choices that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively simple fixes for homeowners to handle themselves.
  • Switch your furnace filter. This is one of the most important things you can do to not only improve your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your bills. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can handle it yourself. It’s normally recommended to change your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some can last even longer.
  • Get plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they can possibly better 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 doing, 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 handled so your comfort isn’t in trouble.

It doesn’t have to feel tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 952-373-0377 to learn more about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
