With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any sunlight, 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 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 Drexel Hill:
- 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 as well. There are a host of options that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty easy fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
- Switch your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most critical 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 switch your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some may last even longer.
- Get plants. Indoor plants can provide a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they can potentially boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number 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 doing, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having air conditioner service performed 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.
