Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service12/11/2015 With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunlight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That spreads far beyond doing annual furnace service too, because there are various 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 Orrville: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could 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 as well. There are a variety of options that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively simple fixes for homeowners to do themselves. Switch 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 bills. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can take care of it yourself. It’s typically recommended to swap your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some could last even longer. Buy plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they could possibly boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of contaminants that are emitted from a variety of 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 receive a reminder. Having furnace service performed annually helps you be sure that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be fixed so your comfort isn’t compromised. It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
