Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any daylight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That goes far beyond having annual furnace service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your furnace is running at its best.

Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Tomball:

  • 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. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside too. There are a host of choices that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively basic fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
  • Change 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 on your energy costs. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can take care of it yourself. It’s normally recommended to change 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 host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they can potentially boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of pollutants that are emitted from various 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 receive a reminder. Having furnace service performed annually helps you make certain that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be handled so your comfort isn’t conceded.

It doesn’t have to feel tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 713-364-9957 to talk about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
