Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

The days are starting to get shorter and colder and it is hard to keep your home comfortable and cozy. We’ve got some tips that can help in addition to 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 you look at your utility bill. Luckily, it’s not costly to fix it. Most times, 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. The best part is that it’s really easy to do yourself. Inspect your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
  • Get plants. Houseplants are great because they look attractive, and they can actually boost your indoor air quality. Many common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from common household cleaners, paints and other products.
  • Furnace service. You should schedule regular furnace service yearly. This will ensure your furnace is working properly, and if it’s not, identify problem areas before they get worse.

Keeping your home comfortable every winter doesn’t have to be an overwhelming task. Call Colvin's Heating and Cooling at 816-379-3918 to find out more about keeping your home comfortable or to schedule furnace service.
