Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service12/11/2015 With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any daylight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That extends far beyond doing annual furnace service too, because there are a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your furnace is doing its. Here are four that we find especially helpful here in Wisconsin Rapids: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a great deal of air is sneaking out of your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside too. There are various options that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy fixes for homeowners to handle themselves. Swap your furnace filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only improve your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your bills. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can handle it yourself. It’s usually recommended to switch your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some can last even longer. Buy plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they could potentially boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of contaminants that are emitted from various common household cleaners, paints and other products. Furnace service. This should be something that you’re already taking care of, but it never hurts to get a reminder. Having furnace service done annually helps you be sure that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be handled so your comfort isn’t compromised. It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
