The days are starting to get shorter and colder and it seems difficult to keep your home comfortable and toasty. We’ve got some tips that can help in addition to completing annual furnace service. These tips will complement the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfortable this winter in Huntingburg:
- 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 it’s time to pay your utility bill. The good news is it’s not costly to fix it. Generally, new weatherstripping or caulking will do the job.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is imperative to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving 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 good to have because they look pretty, and they can actually boost 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 plan for regular furnace service yearly. This will ensure your furnace is working properly, and if it’s not, discover problem areas before they worsen.
