Days are shorter and colder and it seems difficult to keep your home comfortable and warm. We’ve got some tips that can help beyond completing annual furnace service. These tips will boost the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying cozy this winter in Bossier City:
- Seal air leaks. A lot of warm air escapes your home through cracks around your windows and doors. This can be a costly problem when it comes to your utility bill. The good news is it’s not costly to fix it. Usually, new weatherstripping or caulking is all it takes.
- 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 super easy to do yourself. Look at your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
- Get plants. Houseplants are great because they look pretty, and they can actually enhance your indoor air quality. Certain common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from ordinary 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, identify problem areas before they get worse.
