With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunshine, 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 a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your air conditioner is doing its.
Here are four that we find especially helpful here in Litchfield Park:
- 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. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside too. There are various options that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively 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 boost 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 take care of it yourself. It’s usually recommended to change your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some can last even longer.
- Buy plants. Indoor plants can offer a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can potentially better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host 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 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 conceded.
