With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunlight, it can be difficult 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 a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your air conditioner is operating at its peak.
Here are four that we find very helpful here in Circleville:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean quite a bit of air is escaping your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside too. There are a host of options that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively easy fixes for homeowners to do 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 handle it yourself. It’s typically recommended to swap 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 offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they may potentially boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of contaminants that are emitted from various 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 have a reminder. Having air conditioner service performed 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 compromised.
