With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any daylight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That spreads far beyond having annual air conditioner service too, because there are a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your air conditioner is running at its best.
Here are four that we find particularly helpful here in Kingsville:
- 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. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside also. There are various fixes that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively basic 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 energy costs. Plus, you don’t need to have your air conditioner service technician to do it, you can do it yourself. It’s usually 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 leave you with a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they can potentially better 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 handling, but it never hurts to have a reminder. Having air conditioner service completed annually helps make sure that your air conditioner is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be handled so your comfort isn’t conceded.
