Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunlight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That extends far beyond doing annual furnace service too, because there are various 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 particularly helpful here in Shelby:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a lot of air is leaving your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside too. There are various fixes that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty easy fixes for homeowners to do 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 bills. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can handle it yourself. It’s usually recommended to change your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some can last even longer.
  • Get plants. Indoor plants can offer a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they can likely improve 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 handling, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having furnace service completed annually helps you make certain that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be addressed so your comfort isn’t compromised.

It doesn’t have to feel tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 704-233-7363 to talk about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
