Days are shorter and colder and it is hard to keep your home comfortable and cozy. We’ve got some tips that can help aside from completing annual furnace service. These tips will boost the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfy this winter in Portland:
- Seal air leaks. So much warm air escapes your home through gaps around your windows and doors. This can be pricey problem when it comes to your utility bill. Luckily, it’s not costly to fix it. Usually, new weatherstripping or caulking will fix the problem.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is important to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore helping you save money. The best part is that it’s really easy to do yourself. Check your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
- Get plants. Houseplants are a perfect addition to your home because they look nice, and they can actually enhance 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 schedule regular furnace service annually. This will ensure your furnace is working correctly, and if it’s not, find problem areas before they get worse.
