Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any daylight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a cozy 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 couple that we find particularly helpful here in Pocatello:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a great deal 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 heading outside as well. There are a host of options that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty easy fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
  • Swap your furnace filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only boost your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your bills. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can take care of it yourself. It’s typically recommended to change your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some could last even longer.
  • Buy plants. Indoor plants can provide a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they may possibly boost 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 taking care of, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having furnace service completed annually helps you be 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 208-621-0129 to learn more about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
