Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunlight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That spreads far beyond completing annual furnace service too, because there are a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your furnace is operating at its peak.

Here are a few that we find particularly helpful here in Elmhurst:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a lot 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 fixes that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly simple fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
  • Switch your furnace filter. This is one of the most important things you can do to not only boost your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you money. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can do it yourself. It’s normally recommended to switch 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 variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they could possibly boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of toxins that are emitted from a variety 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 get 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 addressed so your comfort isn’t in trouble.

It doesn’t have to feel tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 630-570-0252 to talk about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
