With colder weather 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 cozy place to be. That extends far beyond having annual furnace service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your furnace is running at its best.
Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Bossier City:
- 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. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside too. There are a variety of fixes that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively easy fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
- Swap your furnace filter. This is one of the most important things you can do to not only boost your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you money. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can handle it yourself. It’s normally recommended to swap your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some could last even longer.
- Buy plants. Indoor plants can offer a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can possibly improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of toxins that are emitted from a host of common household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Furnace service. This should be something that you’re already doing, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having furnace service completed annually helps make 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 in trouble.
It doesn’t have to feel tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 318-855-2326 to talk about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
