Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

December 11, 2015

You’ve probably noticed the days are getting shorter and colder and it feels impossible to keep your home comfortable and cozy. We’ve got some tips that can help beyond completing annual furnace service. These tips will complement the comfort your furnace provides.

Here are four tips for staying cozy this winter in Hattiesburg:

  • Seal air leaks. A great deal of warm air escapes your home through gaps around your windows and doors. This can be pricey problem when it comes to your utility bill. Fortunately, it’s not costly to fix it. Generally, new weatherstripping or caulking is all it takes.
  • Change your furnace filter. •This is imperative to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving you some money. What’s more is that it’s super easy to do yourself. Inspect 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 ordinary household cleaners, paints and other products.
  • Furnace service. You should arrange regular furnace service every year. This will ensure your furnace is working correctly, and if it’s not, discover problem areas before they escalate.
