Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service

With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any daylight, 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 a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your furnace is doing its.

Here are four that we find very helpful here in Bountiful:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may 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 going outside too. There are various choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty 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 boost your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your energy costs. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can take care of it yourself. It’s usually recommended to swap your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some could last even longer.
  • Buy plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they could potentially boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of toxins that are emitted from a variety of common household cleaners, paints and other products.
  • Furnace service. This should be something that you’re already doing, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having furnace service performed 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 in trouble.
