Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service

Heating
Service

With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any daylight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That extends far beyond having annual furnace service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your furnace is doing its.

Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Springfield:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a lot of air is sneaking out of your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside also. There are various fixes that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
  • Change your furnace filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only boost your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you money. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can do it yourself. It’s normally recommended to switch your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some can last even longer.
  • Get plants. Indoor plants can provide a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they can potentially improve 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 taking care of, but it never hurts to have a reminder. Having furnace service performed annually helps you make certain that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be fixed so your comfort isn’t compromised.

It doesn’t have to feel hard to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 217-210-2662 or set up an appointment online to hear about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
