Days are shorter and colder and it is hard to keep your home comfortable and cozy. We’ve got a collection of tips that can help in addition to completing annual furnace service. These tips will boost the comfort your furnace provides.

Here are four tips for staying comfortable this winter in Elk River:

  • Seal air leaks. A lot of warm air escapes your home through gaps around your windows and doors. This can be pricey problem when you look at your utility bill. Luckily, it’s not costly to fix it. Most times, new weatherstripping or caulking will fix the problem.
  • Change your furnace filter. •This is imperative to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore helping you save money. What’s more is that it’s incredibly easy to do yourself. Check your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
  • Get plants. Houseplants are great because they look pretty, and they can actually improve your indoor air quality. Certain 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 properly, and if it’s not, find problem areas before they worsen.
