With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunshine, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That extends far beyond completing annual air conditioner service too because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your air conditioner is running at its best.
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean quite a bit of air is leaving your home. And the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside too. There are a host of options that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively simple fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
- Swap your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most important things you can do to not only improve your air conditioner’s efficiency but also to help save you money. Plus, you don’t need to have your air conditioner service technician do it, you can handle it yourself. It’s normally recommended to switch your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some could last even longer.
- Get plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, but they could also likely boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb several contaminants 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 taking care of, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having air conditioner service completed annually helps you make certain that your air conditioner is in working order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be addressed so your comfort isn’t compromised.
