Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service

With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any sunshine, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a cozy place to be. That goes far beyond completing annual furnace service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your furnace is running at its best.

Here are four that we find especially helpful here in Englewood:

  • 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. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside also. There are a variety of choices that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
  • Swap your furnace filter. This is one of the most important things you can do to not only boost your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you money. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can take care of it yourself. It’s usually recommended to change your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some may last even longer.
  • Add plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they may potentially boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of pollutants 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 get 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 fixed so your comfort isn’t compromised.

It doesn’t have to feel hard to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 720-446-5100 or arrange an appointment online to learn more about any of these suggestions or find out more about furnaces, our furnace service or anything else comfort related.
