Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service12/11/2015 With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any sunlight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That spreads far beyond having 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 few that we find very helpful here in Hamilton: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean a great deal of air is leaving your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside also. There are a variety of fixes that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves. Swap your furnace filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only increase 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 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 performance, but some can last even longer. Get plants. Indoor plants can provide a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they may likely better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number 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 taking care of, but it never hurts to get 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 overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
