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 sunshine, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That goes far beyond completing annual furnace service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your furnace is doing its. Here are a couple that we find especially helpful here in Augusta: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a lot of air is sneaking out of your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside as well. There are various options that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic fixes for homeowners to handle themselves. Change your furnace filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only increase 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 do it yourself. It’s typically recommended to switch your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some can last even longer. Add plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they may possibly boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of toxins that are emitted from various 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 fixed so your comfort isn’t conceded. It doesn’t have to feel hard to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
