With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunshine, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That extends far beyond completing annual air conditioner service too, because there are a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your air conditioner is operating at its peak.
Here are a couple that we find especially helpful here in Boynton Beach:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean a lot of air is escaping your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside as well. There are a host of options that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty easy fixes for homeowners to handle themselves.
- Change 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 money. Plus, you don’t need to have your air conditioner service technician to do it, you can take care of 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 can last even longer.
- Add plants. Indoor plants can offer a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they can possibly boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number 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 doing, but it never hurts to have a reminder. Having air conditioner service done annually helps you make certain that your air conditioner is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be handled so your comfort isn’t conceded.
