Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

December 11, 2015

The days are starting to get shorter and colder and it feels impossible to keep your home comfortable and toasty. We’ve got a collection of tips that can help aside from completing annual furnace service. These tips will complement the comfort your furnace provides.

Here are four tips for staying comfortable this winter in Excelsior Springs:

  • Seal air leaks. A lot of warm air escapes your home through small cracks around your windows and doors. This can be pricey problem when it’s time to pay your utility bill. Fortunately, it’s not costly to fix it. Generally, new weatherstripping or caulking is all it takes.
  • Change your furnace filter. •This is important to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore helping you save money. What’s even better is that it’s super easy to do yourself. Inspect your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
  • Get plants. Houseplants are great because they look nice, and they can actually improve your indoor air quality. Certain common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from ordinary household cleaners, paints and other products.
  • Furnace service. You should plan for regular furnace service annually. This will ensure your furnace is working properly, and if it’s not, identify problem areas before they escalate.
