Comfort Maximized From New Plants to Furnace Service

With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any daylight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That spreads far beyond completing annual furnace service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your furnace is operating at its peak.

Here are four that we find particularly helpful here in Ronkonkoma:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a great deal of air is escaping your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside also. There are a variety of choices that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic fixes for homeowners to handle themselves.
  • Swap your furnace filter. This is one of the most important things you can do to not only increase your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your bills. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can do it yourself. It’s usually recommended to change your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some may last even longer.
  • Buy plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they could potentially improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of toxins 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 receive a reminder. Having furnace service done annually helps make sure that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be addressed so your comfort isn’t conceded.

It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 631-246-4029 to talk about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
