Days are shorter and colder and it seems difficult to keep your home comfortable and toasty. We’ve got a few tips that can help in addition to completing annual furnace service. These tips will boost the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfortable this winter in Rochester:
- Seal air leaks. So much warm air escapes your home through cracks around your windows and doors. This can be a costly problem when you look at your utility bill. Luckily, it’s not costly to fix it. Generally, new weatherstripping or caulking will do the job.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is imperative 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. Inspect your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
- Get plants. Houseplants are good to have because they look attractive, 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 schedule regular furnace service annually. This will ensure your furnace is working as it should, and if it’s not, discover problem areas before they escalate.
