Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any daylight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That spreads far beyond having annual furnace service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your furnace is doing its.

Here are a few that we find especially helpful here in Waterloo:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean quite a bit of air is leaving your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside too. There are a host of fixes that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty easy fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
  • Change your furnace filter. This is one of the most critical things you can do to not only increase 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 handle it yourself. It’s normally recommended to switch your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some can last even longer.
  • Get plants. Indoor plants can provide a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they could potentially improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of contaminants that are emitted from various 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 done annually helps make sure that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be handled so your comfort isn’t conceded.

It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 519-664-0600 to hear about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
