You’ve probably noticed the days are getting shorter and colder and it is hard 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 enhance the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfortable this winter in Erie:
- Seal air leaks. So much 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. Most times, new weatherstripping or caulking is all it takes.
- 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 really easy to do yourself. Check your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
- Get plants. Houseplants are great because they look pretty, and they can actually enhance 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 plan for regular furnace service every year. This will ensure your furnace is working as it should, and if it’s not, identify problem areas before they worsen.
