Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any daylight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That spreads far beyond doing annual furnace service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your furnace is operating at its peak.

Here are a few that we find particularly helpful here in Bloomfield:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can 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 making its way outside as well. There are a host of choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty easy fixes for homeowners to handle themselves.
  • Change your furnace filter. This is one of the most critical things you can do to not only increase 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 change your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some may last even longer.
  • Buy plants. Indoor plants can provide a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they can possibly improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of toxins that are emitted from a host 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 completed annually helps make sure that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be handled so your comfort isn’t in trouble.

It doesn’t have to feel tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 812-825-8695 to hear about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
