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