Days are shorter and colder and it is hard to keep your home comfortable and warm. We’ve got a few tips that can help beyond completing annual furnace service. These tips will boost the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfortable this winter in Des Moines:
- Seal air leaks. So much warm air escapes your home through gaps 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. Most times, new weatherstripping or caulking is all it takes.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is crucial to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving you some money. The best part is that it’s really easy to do yourself. Look at your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
- Get plants. Houseplants are great because they look pretty, and they can actually boost your indoor air quality. Certain common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from ordinary household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Furnace service. You should arrange regular furnace service annually. This will ensure your furnace is working correctly, and if it’s not, identify problem areas before they worsen.
