The days are starting to get shorter and colder and it feels impossible to keep your home comfortable and warm. We’ve got a few tips that can help beyond completing annual furnace service. These tips will enhance the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfortable this winter in Oxford:
- Seal air leaks. A lot of warm air escapes your home through cracks around your windows and doors. This can be an expensive problem when you look at your utility bill. The good news is it’s not costly to fix it. Generally, new weatherstripping or caulking will fix the problem.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is imperative to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving you some money. The best part 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 a perfect addition to your home because they look attractive, and they can actually improve your indoor air quality. A lot of 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 correctly, and if it’s not, identify problem areas before they get worse.
