With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any sunshine, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a cozy place to be. That goes far beyond completing annual air conditioner service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your air conditioner is running at its best.
Here are a couple that we find very helpful here in Huffman:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean quite a bit of air is sneaking out of your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside also. There are a host of choices that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic fixes for homeowners to handle themselves.
- Switch your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only improve your air conditioner’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your bills. 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 capabilities, but some can last even longer.
- Add plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they may possibly improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of toxins that are emitted from a host of common household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Air conditioner service. This should be something that you’re already handling, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having air conditioner service completed annually helps you be sure 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 conceded.
