Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

December 11, 2015

Days are shorter and colder and it seems difficult to keep your home comfortable and warm. We’ve got a collection of tips that can help aside from completing annual furnace service. These tips will complement the comfort your furnace provides.

Here are four tips for staying comfortable this winter in Beaverton:

  • Seal air leaks. A great deal of warm air escapes your home through small cracks around your windows and doors. This can be pricey 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 crucial to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving you some money. What’s even better is that it’s really 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 boost your indoor air quality. Many common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from ordinary household cleaners, paints and other products.
  • Furnace service. You should schedule regular furnace service yearly. This will ensure your furnace is working properly, and if it’s not, find problem areas before they get worse.
