Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service12/11/2015 With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunshine, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a cozy place to be. That goes far beyond having annual furnace service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your furnace is running at its best. Here are a couple that we find particularly helpful here in Hendersonville: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean quite a bit of air is escaping your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside as well. There are a host of fixes that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty easy fixes for homeowners to do themselves. Switch 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 money. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can take care of it yourself. It’s normally recommended to change your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some may last even longer. Add plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they can potentially better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host 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 get a reminder. Having furnace service done annually helps you make certain 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 hard to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
