With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any daylight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That extends 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 a few that we find particularly helpful here in Monroe:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean quite a bit of air is escaping your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside also. There are various fixes that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty easy fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
- Change your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only boost 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 normally 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.
- Add plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they may likely boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host 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 handling, but it never hurts to get 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 addressed so your comfort isn’t conceded.
