Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service

Heating
Service

With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunlight, it can be tough 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 comfy even when your furnace is operating at its peak.

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

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a great deal of air is escaping your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside too. There are various choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty simple fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
  • Swap your furnace filter. This is one of the most important things you can do to not only improve your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you money. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can take care of it yourself. It’s normally recommended to switch your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some can last even longer.
  • Buy plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they could possibly improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of toxins that are emitted from various 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 make sure 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 862-345-6896 to talk about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
