7 Ways to Make Your Home More Comfortable in 2023

Have you thought about your New Year's resolution yet? How about a resolution to make your home more comfortable?

Whether or not it's your year-long goal, a comfortable home can help you achieve all sorts of things. And as Minnesota’s experts in HVAC comfort, our team is here with some tips to help you follow through.

Here are seven ways to make your home more pleasant as we move into a new year!

1. Take a Look at Humidity Control

Regulating your home's humidity is essential. You'll save money, stop mold growth, and even prolong the life of beloved wood family heirlooms.

And as far as comfort goes, appropriate humidity is paramount. Too low a level can cause everything from static electricity to irritated skin, and too high a level brings with it the potential respiratory issues that come with mold infestation.

If comfort concerns you in the new year, consider a whole-house humidifier, which keeps your home's moisture conditions at optimal comfort levels.

2. Check Your Air Filtration System

Is Fido's dander making the air a little stuffy? Do allergy sufferers in your home deal with unrelenting indoor air?

Consider scheduling HVAC services to check out your air filtration system and see if it's time to upgrade. With the right filter – not too high a MERV rating and not too low – your HVAC system will perform at its best.

You'll also see irritants in your air disappear, making your home feel open, breezier, and all the more comfortable.

3. Use Ceiling Fans for More Than Cooling

Most of us think about using our ceiling fans primarily in the summer to cool off our home's rooms or air out during spring cleaning. However, you can also use your home's ceiling fans to make your home more comfortable in the winter.

Ceiling fans are an energy-efficient way to circulate cold air, making the room more comfortable. Switch your fan to go counterclockwise and push the heat down. This will help your home stay warmer and make life easier for your heating system.

4. Install a Whole-House Fan

What is a whole-house fan? More than a ceiling fan, a whole-house fan allows fresh air to come in from outside while circulating out stale air. They use less energy and keep your home more comfortable.

Midwest winters are tough, and we all tend to stay inside when we don't need to be out. That tends to make the air stale in our home because we aren't opening windows to let that chill air in.

With a whole-house fan, the stale air is circulated out, and you are left with comfortable, warm air all winter long.

5. Clear & Unblock Vents

Speaking of comfortable, warm air: It is essential to clear and unblock your home's vents. This is also an excellent tip for other seasons.

When you cover or block your home's vents, there is dust building, and this causes a blockage of airflow. Take a walk around your home, inspecting the vents to ensure warm air can easily get around.

6. Check for Air Leaks & Seal Them

You can quickly make your home more comfortable by looking for air leaks. On a particularly cold day, it's easy to find leaks around doors and windows because you'll feel that wintry wind trying to get in.

To properly seal these air leaks, connect with our HVAC professionals. Air Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. is a customer-focused, full-service HVAC company serving residents in the Anoka, Minnesota area.

Taking the time to check for and seal air leaks not only makes your home more comfortable, but also allows your heating system to run more efficiently. This means a lesser impact on your home's energy bills.

7. Schedule Regular HVAC Maintenance

Nothing is worse than a furnace that won't kick in or air conditioning that's a little overzealous – or vice versa. Not only do these problems leave you frigid or overheating, but they can be outright dangerous if the temperatures outside become a hazard.

That's why the best thing you can do to boost your home's comfort in 2023 is to invest in a furnace and air conditioning service preventative maintenance plan! Our experienced technicians can ensure the safety and performance of your system in one quick, yearly appointment.
