Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any daylight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That spreads far beyond completing annual furnace service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your furnace is doing its.

Here are a few that we find particularly helpful here in Grand Prairie:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean quite a bit of air is sneaking out of your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside also. There are a variety of choices that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty basic fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
  • Change your furnace filter. This is one of the most important things you can do to not only improve your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your energy costs. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can do it yourself. It’s normally recommended to change your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some can last even longer.
  • Buy plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they may possibly boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of toxins that are emitted from a host 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 completed annually helps make sure that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be fixed so your comfort isn’t in trouble.

It doesn’t have to feel hard to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 972-445-9504 to hear about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
