Days are shorter and colder and it is hard to keep your home comfortable and warm. We’ve got a collection of tips that can help beyond completing annual furnace service. These tips will complement the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfy this winter in the Bay Area:
- Seal air leaks. A lot of warm air escapes your home through gaps around your windows and doors. This can be pricey problem when it comes to your utility bill. The good news is it’s not costly to fix it. Usually, new weatherstripping or caulking is all it takes.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is imperative to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving you some money. The best part is that it’s super easy to do yourself. Check your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
- Get plants. Houseplants are a perfect addition to your home because they look attractive, and they can actually boost your indoor air quality. A lot of common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from common household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Furnace service. You should arrange regular furnace service every year. This will ensure your furnace is working correctly, and if it’s not, discover problem areas before they escalate.
