Here are four tips for staying comfy this winter in Bend:
- Seal air leaks. A great deal of warm air escapes your home through cracks around your windows and doors. This can be an expensive problem when it’s time to pay your utility bill. The good news is it’s not costly to fix it. Most times, new weatherstripping or caulking will fix the problem.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is crucial to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving you some 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 great because they look attractive, 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 every year. This will ensure your furnace is working as it should, and if it’s not, discover problem areas before they worsen.
