With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any daylight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That goes far beyond completing annual air conditioner service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your air conditioner is running at its best.
Here are a couple that we find especially helpful here in East Bernard:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean quite a bit of air is escaping your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside also. There are a host of fixes that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
- Swap 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 handle it yourself. It’s normally recommended to swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some can last even longer.
- Add plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they could possibly boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of 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 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 in trouble.
