With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunshine, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfy 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 cozy even when your air conditioner is doing its.
Here are four that we find especially helpful here in Lake Worth:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean quite a bit of air is sneaking out of your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside too. There are various choices that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty basic fixes for homeowners to handle themselves.
- Swap your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most critical things you can do to not only increase 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 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 host 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 pollutants that are emitted from a variety 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 have a reminder. Having air conditioner service completed annually helps you make certain that your air conditioner is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be handled so your comfort isn’t conceded.
