The days are starting to get shorter and colder and it feels impossible to keep your home comfortable and warm. We’ve got a collection of tips that can help aside from completing annual furnace service. These tips will complement the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying cozy this winter in Chelan and Wenatchee:
- Seal air leaks. A lot of warm air escapes your home through cracks around your windows and doors. This can be a costly problem when you look at your utility bill. The good news is it’s not costly to fix it. Most times, new weatherstripping or caulking is all it takes.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is imperative to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore helping you save money. The best part is that it’s really easy to do yourself. Inspect your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
- Get plants. Houseplants are great because they look pretty, 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 common household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Furnace service. You should schedule regular furnace service annually. This will ensure your furnace is working as it should, and if it’s not, discover problem areas before they escalate.
