With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunshine, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That extends far beyond doing annual air conditioner service too, because there are various 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 Greensburg:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a lot of air is leaving your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside also. There are a variety of options that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly simple fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
- Swap 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 usually recommended to change your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some could last even longer.
- Add plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they can likely improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of pollutants 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 have a reminder. Having air conditioner service performed annually helps make 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 in trouble.
