Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any daylight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That spreads far beyond completing annual furnace service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your furnace is running at its best.

Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Moline:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a lot of air is sneaking out of your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside too. There are a host of options that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly simple fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
  • Change your furnace filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only improve 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 do it yourself. It’s usually recommended to swap your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some can last even longer.
  • Add plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they could possibly improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of contaminants that are emitted from a host 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 done 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 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 309-323-9584 to talk about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
