That goes far beyond doing annual furnace service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your furnace is doing its. Here are a couple that we find especially helpful here in Dallas: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a great deal of air is escaping your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside as well. There are various options that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic fixes for homeowners to handle themselves. Change your furnace filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only improve 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 typically recommended to change your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some may last even longer. Get plants. Indoor plants can offer a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they may possibly boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of toxins that are emitted from a variety of common household cleaners, paints and other products. Furnace service. This should be something that you’re already taking care of, but it never hurts to get a reminder. Having furnace service done annually helps make sure that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be handled so your comfort isn’t in trouble. It doesn’t have to feel hard to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
