With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any sunshine, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That spreads far beyond doing annual air conditioner service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your air conditioner is running at its best.
Here are four that we find particularly helpful here in Crestview:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean quite a bit of air is leaving your home. It goes without saying 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 easy fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
- Switch your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most important 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 typically recommended to change your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some may last even longer.
- Add plants. Indoor plants can offer a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can possibly boost 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 taking care of, 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 compromised.
It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 850-250-0335 to hear about any of these suggestions or find out more about air conditioners, our air conditioner service or anything else comfort related.
