The days are starting to get shorter and colder and it feels impossible to keep your home comfortable and warm. We’ve got some tips that can help beyond completing annual furnace service. These tips will enhance the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfy this winter in Williamsport:
- Seal air leaks. A great deal of warm air escapes your home through small cracks around your windows and doors. This can be a costly problem when it comes to your utility bill. Fortunately, it’s not costly to fix it. Generally, new weatherstripping or caulking is all it takes.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is imperative to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving 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 good to have because they look pretty, 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 ordinary household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Furnace service. You should arrange regular furnace service annually. This will ensure your furnace is working properly, and if it’s not, identify problem areas before they worsen.
