You’ve probably noticed the days are getting shorter and colder and it seems difficult to keep your home comfortable and cozy. We’ve got a collection of tips that can help aside from completing annual furnace service. These tips will boost the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfortable this winter in Des Moines:
- Seal air leaks. A great deal of warm air escapes your home through small cracks around your windows and doors. This can be a costly problem when it’s time to pay your utility bill. Fortunately, it’s not costly to fix it. Usually, new weatherstripping or caulking will do the job.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is important to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving you some money. What’s more 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 improve your indoor air quality. Many common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from common household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Furnace service. You should plan for regular furnace service every year. This will ensure your furnace is working correctly, and if it’s not, discover problem areas before they escalate.
