Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any sunlight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a cozy 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 cozy even when your furnace is doing its.

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

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a great deal of air is leaving your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside as well. There are various fixes that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy 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 on your bills. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can take care of it yourself. It’s typically recommended to swap 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 number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they could likely better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of pollutants that are emitted from a host of common household cleaners, paints and other products.
  • Furnace service. This should be something that you’re already handling, but it never hurts to have a reminder. Having furnace service completed annually helps you make certain that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be fixed so your comfort isn’t compromised.

It doesn’t have to feel hard to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 308-624-3485 to hear about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
