Days are shorter and colder and it feels impossible to keep your home comfortable and cozy. We’ve got a collection of 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 Jefferson City:
- Seal air leaks. So much warm air escapes your home through gaps around your windows and doors. This can be an expensive problem when you look at 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 important to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore helping you save money. What’s even better 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 arrange regular furnace service yearly. This will ensure your furnace is working as it should, and if it’s not, find problem areas before they worsen.
