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 cozy. We’ve got a few tips that can help aside from completing annual furnace service. These tips will enhance the comfort your furnace provides.

Here are four tips for staying cozy this winter in Moline:

  • Seal air leaks. A great deal of warm air escapes your home through small cracks around your windows and doors. This can be pricey problem when it comes to your utility bill. Luckily, 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 saving you some 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 a perfect addition to your home because they look nice, and they can actually enhance your indoor air quality. Many common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from ordinary household cleaners, paints and other products.
  • Furnace service. You should schedule regular furnace service every year. This will ensure your furnace is working properly, and if it’s not, find problem areas before they get worse.
