Days are 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 Rapid City:
- Seal air leaks. So much warm air escapes your home through gaps around your windows and doors. This can be an expensive 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 saving you some money. What’s even better is that it’s incredibly 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 pretty, and they can actually improve 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 yearly. This will ensure your furnace is working properly, and if it’s not, find problem areas before they get worse.
