Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

December 11, 2015

Days are shorter and colder and it is hard 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 Magnolia:

  • Seal air leaks. A lot of warm air escapes your home through gaps around your windows and doors. This can be pricey problem when it’s time to pay your utility bill. The good news is it’s not costly to fix it. Usually, 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 really easy to do yourself. Inspect 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 enhance your indoor air quality. Certain common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from common 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, discover problem areas before they escalate.
