Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service12/11/2015With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunlight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a cozy place to be. That spreads far beyond completing 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 operating at its peak. Here are a couple that we find particularly helpful here in Litchfield Park: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a great deal 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 choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively basic fixes for homeowners to do themselves. Change 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 do it yourself. It’s normally recommended to swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some could last even longer. Buy plants. Indoor plants can provide a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can potentially improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of toxins 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 get a reminder. Having air conditioner service done 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 in trouble. It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
