Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunshine, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That goes far beyond completing annual furnace service too, because there are a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your furnace is running at its best.

Here are four that we find particularly helpful here in Heflin:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a lot of air is leaving your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside also. There are a host of choices that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty simple fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
  • Switch your furnace filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only increase 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 usually recommended to change your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some could last even longer.
  • Get plants. Indoor plants can provide a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they could possibly improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of toxins 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 have a reminder. Having furnace service done annually helps you make certain that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be addressed 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 256-270-1196 to talk about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
