December 11, 2015

You’ve probably noticed the days are getting shorter and colder and it is hard to keep your home comfortable and toasty. We’ve got a few tips that can help in addition to completing annual furnace service. These tips will enhance the comfort your furnace provides.

Here are four tips for staying comfy this winter in Bartlesville:

  • Seal air leaks. A lot of warm air escapes your home through gaps 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. Usually, new weatherstripping or caulking will fix the problem.
  • Change your furnace filter. •This is crucial to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore helping you save money. The best part is that it’s super easy to do yourself. Check your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
  • Get plants. Houseplants are a perfect addition to your home because they look nice, 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 plan for regular furnace service annually. This will ensure your furnace is working correctly, and if it’s not, find problem areas before they get worse.
