Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

December 11, 2015

The days are starting to get 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 complement the comfort your furnace provides.

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

  • Seal air leaks. So much warm air escapes your home through cracks around your windows and doors. This can be pricey problem when it’s time to pay your utility bill. Luckily, it’s not costly to fix it. Most times, new weatherstripping or caulking is all it takes.
  • Change your furnace filter. •This is crucial to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore helping you save money. The best part is that it’s incredibly 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 nice, and they can actually enhance 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 plan for regular furnace service yearly. This will ensure your furnace is working as it should, and if it’s not, identify problem areas before they get worse.
