With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any daylight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That spreads far beyond completing annual air conditioner service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your air conditioner is operating at its peak.
Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Eastland:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean quite a bit of air is leaving your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside as well. There are various options that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
- Switch your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most critical things you can do to not only boost your air conditioner’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your energy costs. Plus, you don’t need to have your air conditioner service technician to do it, you can take care of it yourself. It’s normally recommended to change your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some could last even longer.
- Buy plants. Indoor plants can provide a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they can likely boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of toxins that are emitted from a variety of common household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Air conditioner service. This should be something that you’re already doing, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having air conditioner service done annually helps you make certain that your air conditioner is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be fixed so your comfort isn’t in trouble.
