With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any daylight, 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 numerous things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your air conditioner is operating at its peak.
Here are a few that we find especially helpful here in Bishop:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean quite a bit of air is leaving your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside too. There are various fixes that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy 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 boost 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 typically recommended to change your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some could last even longer.
- Add plants. Indoor plants can offer a host 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 host of toxins 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 done annually helps make 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 conceded.
