Days are shorter and colder and it is hard to keep your home comfortable and toasty. We’ve got a few tips that can help aside from completing annual furnace service. These tips will complement the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfortable this winter in Arlington:
- Seal air leaks. A lot of warm air escapes your home through small cracks around your windows and doors. This can be pricey problem when it comes to your utility bill. Luckily, it’s not costly to fix it. Usually, new weatherstripping or caulking will fix the problem.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is imperative to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving you some money. What’s even better is that it’s super easy to do yourself. Look at your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
- Get plants. Houseplants are good to have because they look nice, and they can actually improve your indoor air quality. A lot of common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from everyday household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Furnace service. You should arrange regular furnace service yearly. This will ensure your furnace is working properly, and if it’s not, identify problem areas before they get worse.
