Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service

Heating
Service

With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunlight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That spreads far beyond having annual furnace service too, because there are a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your furnace is running at its best.

Here are four that we find especially helpful here in Shreveport:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a great deal of air is escaping your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside as well. There are a variety of fixes that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
  • Switch your furnace filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only increase 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 take care of it yourself. It’s usually 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 may possibly better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of pollutants 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 done annually helps you make certain that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be addressed so your comfort isn’t compromised.

It doesn’t have to feel tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 318-671-5355 to talk about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
