The days are starting to get shorter and colder and it is hard to keep your home comfortable and warm. We’ve got some tips that can help in addition to completing annual furnace service. These tips will boost the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfy this winter in Manassas:
- Seal air leaks. A great deal of warm air escapes your home through cracks around your windows and doors. This can be an expensive problem when it comes to your utility bill. Luckily, it’s not costly to fix it. Most times, new weatherstripping or caulking will do the job.
- 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 super 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 enhance your indoor air quality. Many common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from common household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Furnace service. You should plan for regular furnace service every year. This will ensure your furnace is working properly, and if it’s not, find problem areas before they get worse.
