Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

December 11, 2015

You’ve probably noticed the days are getting shorter and colder and it feels impossible to keep your home comfortable and cozy. We’ve got a collection of tips that can help beyond completing annual furnace service. These tips will enhance the comfort your furnace provides.

Here are four tips for staying cozy this winter in Genoa:

  • Seal air leaks. A lot of warm air escapes your home through small cracks around your windows and doors. This can be a costly problem when you look at your utility bill. The good news is it’s not costly to fix it. Most times, new weatherstripping or caulking is all it takes.
  • Change your furnace filter. •This is important to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving money. The best part is that it’s incredibly easy to do yourself. Inspect your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
  • Get plants. Houseplants are good to have because they look pretty, and they can actually enhance your indoor air quality. Many common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from everyday household cleaners, paints and other products.
  • Furnace service. You should arrange regular furnace service every year. This will ensure your furnace is working properly, and if it’s not, discover problem areas before they escalate.
