With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunshine, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfy 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 cozy even when your air conditioner is doing its.
Here are four that we find particularly helpful here in Huntingburg:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a great deal of air is escaping your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside too. There are various choices that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively easy fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
- Swap 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 money. Plus, you don’t need to have your air conditioner service technician to do it, you can take care of it yourself. It’s typically recommended to swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some may last even longer.
- Add plants. Indoor plants can offer a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they could likely improve 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 get 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 in trouble.
