Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

The days are starting to get shorter and colder and it feels impossible to keep your home comfortable and cozy. We’ve got some tips that can help in addition to completing annual furnace service. These tips will enhance the comfort your furnace provides.

Here are four tips for staying comfy this winter in Carpentersville:

  • Seal air leaks. A great deal 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 you some money. What’s even better is that it’s really easy to do yourself. Check your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
  • Get plants. Houseplants are great because they look attractive, and they can actually enhance your indoor air quality. A lot of 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 annually. This will ensure your furnace is working properly, and if it’s not, identify problem areas before they escalate.

Keeping your home comfortable every winter doesn’t have to be time-consuming task. Call Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc at 224-412-8308 to learn more about keeping your home comfortable or to schedule furnace service.
