Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any daylight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That extends far beyond completing annual furnace service too, because there are a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your furnace is doing its.

Here are a couple that we find very helpful here in Saint Marys:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean quite a bit of air is escaping your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside as well. There are a variety of choices that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
  • Swap your furnace filter. This is one of the most important things you can do to not only increase your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your energy costs. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can do it yourself. It’s normally recommended to change your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some could last even longer.
  • Get plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can potentially better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of pollutants that are emitted from a host of common household cleaners, paints and other products.
  • Furnace service. This should be something that you’re already handling, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having furnace service completed annually helps you be sure that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be addressed so your comfort isn’t conceded.

It doesn’t have to feel tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 912-208-2470 to hear about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
