With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any daylight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That extends far beyond doing 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 a few that we find especially helpful here in Stuart:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean a great deal of air is escaping your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside also. There are a variety of fixes that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively basic fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
- Switch your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only increase 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 change your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some may last even longer.
- Buy plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they can potentially better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number 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 doing, but it never hurts to have 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 fixed so your comfort isn’t conceded.
