Days are shorter and colder and it is hard to keep your home comfortable and toasty. 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 comfortable this winter in Bishop:
- Seal air leaks. A lot of warm air escapes your home through small cracks around your windows and doors. This can be a costly problem when it comes to your utility bill. Luckily, it’s not costly to fix it. Most times, new weatherstripping or caulking is all it takes.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is important to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving you some money. The best part is that it’s incredibly 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 boost 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 properly, and if it’s not, discover problem areas before they get worse.
