You’ve probably noticed the days are getting shorter and colder and it seems difficult to keep your home comfortable and toasty. We’ve got a few tips that can help in addition to completing annual furnace service. These tips will complement the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfy this winter in Sandpoint:
- Seal air leaks. A great deal of warm air escapes your home through small cracks around your windows and doors. This can be an expensive problem when it’s time to pay your utility bill. Fortunately, it’s not costly to fix it. Most times, new weatherstripping or caulking is all it takes.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is crucial to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving you some 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 a perfect addition to your home because they look pretty, and they can actually enhance your indoor air quality. Many common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from everyday household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Furnace service. You should plan for regular furnace service every year. This will ensure your furnace is working as it should, and if it’s not, discover problem areas before they escalate.
