The days are starting to get shorter and colder and it is hard to keep your home comfortable and cozy. We’ve got a few tips that can help beyond completing annual furnace service. These tips will boost the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfy this winter in Mankato area:
- Seal air leaks. So much warm air escapes your home through small cracks around your windows and doors. This can be a costly problem when it’s time to pay 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 important to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving money. What’s more is that it’s incredibly 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 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 arrange regular furnace service annually. This will ensure your furnace is working as it should, and if it’s not, identify problem areas before they worsen.
