You’ve probably noticed the days are getting shorter and colder and it feels impossible to keep your home comfortable and toasty. We’ve got a few tips that can help beyond completing annual furnace service. These tips will boost the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfortable this winter in Laurel:
- Seal air leaks. A great deal of warm air escapes your home through cracks around your windows and doors. This can be a costly problem when you look at your utility bill. Fortunately, it’s not costly to fix it. Usually, 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 super 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 attractive, and they can actually improve your indoor air quality. Certain common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from ordinary household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Furnace service. You should schedule regular furnace service every year. This will ensure your furnace is working properly, and if it’s not, identify problem areas before they get worse.
