The days are starting to get shorter and colder and it seems difficult to keep your home comfortable and cozy. We’ve got some 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 comfy this winter in Lake Forest:
- Seal air leaks. So much warm air escapes your home through gaps around your windows and doors. This can be an expensive problem when it’s time to pay your utility bill. Luckily, it’s not costly to fix it. Most times, new weatherstripping or caulking will do the job.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is crucial to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore helping you save money. What’s more is that it’s incredibly easy to do yourself. Check your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
- Get plants. Houseplants are great because they look attractive, and they can actually improve 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 schedule regular furnace service every year. This will ensure your furnace is working correctly, and if it’s not, discover problem areas before they escalate.
