Keep Your Home Warm Durning a Winter Blast

  1. Change your filters every month: Changing your filter every month will ensure that you have proper airflow in your home. This will help with energy costs and the overall air quality in your home.
  2. Use a programmable thermostat: With so many choices out there of programmable thermostats, you should have one in your home. There are Nest Thermostats that you can control from the palm of your hand or basic Honeywell thermostats that are easy to program. To maintain a proper temperature in your home you should set your thermostat to 68 degrees when you are at home. During the hours that you are not home, like while you're at work, you can set the temp to a lower temperature.
  3. Keep Your Outdoor Vents Clear:  Your vents to your furnace lead to the outside. Make sure that you do not have any debris, trash cans or even wood blocking those vents. Blocking the vents can cause a malfunction or breakdown.
  4. Get Your Furnace Maintenance: An annual cleaning and check-up of your furnace will ensure that everything in your heater is working properly and that you do not encounter a breakdown during the winter months and that your home is warm during a winter blast.
Schedule an annual furnace tune-up:  Your furnace needs annual maintenance just like your car. There are many reasons why you need annual heating maintenance, but the number one reason is to save you money in the long run. Call Cozy Comfort Today for a home heat evaluation, or for any of your repair needs. (303) 357-9807
