Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service12/11/2015 With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunshine, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That extends far beyond having annual furnace service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your furnace is doing its. Here are a few that we find particularly helpful here in Humble: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean a lot of air is escaping your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside as well. There are a host of options that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively simple fixes for homeowners to handle themselves. Change your furnace filter. This is one of the most critical things you can do to not only boost 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 do it yourself. It’s usually recommended to switch your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some could last even longer. Add plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they could likely boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of toxins that are emitted from various common household cleaners, paints and other products. Furnace service. This should be something that you’re already handling, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having furnace service done 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 overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
