Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service12/11/2015 With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any daylight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That extends far beyond completing annual furnace service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your furnace is operating at its peak. Here are a few that we find particularly helpful here in Greenville: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean a great deal of air is sneaking out of your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside as well. There are various options that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty basic fixes for homeowners to handle themselves. Swap your furnace filter. This is one of the most important things you can do to not only increase your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your bills. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can handle it yourself. It’s typically recommended to swap your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some can last even longer. Get plants. Indoor plants can provide a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they may possibly boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of pollutants 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 addressed so your comfort isn’t in trouble. It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
