The days are starting to get shorter and colder and it is hard to keep your home comfortable and cozy. We’ve got some tips that can help in addition to completing annual furnace service. These tips will complement the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying cozy this winter in Rapid City:
- 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 is all it takes.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is crucial to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving you some money. What’s more is that it’s super easy to do yourself. Look at 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 improve your indoor air quality. Many common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from common household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Furnace service. You should plan for regular furnace service every year. This will ensure your furnace is working as it should, and if it’s not, discover problem areas before they escalate.
