With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunshine, it can be tough 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 a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your air conditioner is running at its best.
Here are a couple that we find particularly helpful here in Redford:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a great deal of air is leaving your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside also. There are a host of fixes that can help you seal 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 improve 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 take care of it yourself. It’s normally recommended to change your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some can last even longer.
- Add plants. Indoor plants can offer a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can possibly improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of contaminants 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 taking care of, but it never hurts to have a reminder. Having air conditioner service performed annually helps you be 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.
