Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service

Heating
Service

With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any sunshine, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That goes far beyond having 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 four that we find especially helpful here in Fort Worth:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a lot of air is sneaking out of your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside also. There are a host of options that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty simple fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
  • Swap 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 take care of it yourself. It’s usually recommended to switch your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some can last even longer.
  • Add plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they can potentially better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of contaminants that are emitted from a host of common household cleaners, paints and other products.
  • Furnace service. This should be something that you’re already doing, but it never hurts to get a reminder. Having furnace service performed annually helps make sure that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be addressed so your comfort isn’t compromised.

It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 817-864-1021 to hear about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
