You’ve probably noticed the days are getting shorter and colder and it seems difficult to keep your home comfortable and warm. We’ve got a few tips that can help beyond completing annual furnace service. These tips will boost the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfy this winter in Carson City:
- Seal air leaks. A great deal of warm air escapes your home through gaps around your windows and doors. This can be an expensive problem when it comes to your utility bill. Fortunately, it’s not costly to fix it. Generally, new weatherstripping or caulking will do the job.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is imperative to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore helping you save money. What’s even better is that it’s incredibly easy to do yourself. Inspect your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
- Get plants. Houseplants are good to have because they look attractive, and they can actually enhance your indoor air quality. A lot of common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from everyday household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Furnace service. You should arrange regular furnace service yearly. This will ensure your furnace is working as it should, and if it’s not, discover problem areas before they get worse.
