Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service

Heating
Service

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

Here are a few that we find especially helpful here in Lincoln:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean a great deal of air is leaving your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside as well. There are a host of options that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy fixes for homeowners to handle themselves.
  • Swap your furnace filter. This is one of the most important things you can do to not only improve 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 normally recommended to change your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some could last even longer.
  • Add plants. Indoor plants can offer a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they can likely better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of contaminants that are emitted from a variety of common household cleaners, paints and other products.
  • Furnace service. This should be something that you’re already handling, but it never hurts to have a reminder. Having furnace service done annually helps you make certain 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 hard to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 402-438-7992 to talk about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
