With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any daylight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That extends far beyond doing annual air conditioner service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your air conditioner is running at its best.
Here are a few that we find particularly helpful here in Montoursville:
- 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. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside as well. There are a host of options that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively easy fixes for homeowners to handle themselves.
- Swap 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 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 typically recommended to swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some may last even longer.
- Get plants. Indoor plants can provide a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they can likely better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of toxins 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 handling, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having air conditioner service done 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.
