Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service12/11/2015With 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 cozy 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 comfortable even when your air conditioner is running at its best. Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Crestview: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a great deal of air is leaving your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside also. There are various choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty 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 money. 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 switch your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some can last even longer. Get plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they could potentially improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host 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 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 addressed so your comfort isn’t compromised. It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
