With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any daylight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a cozy place to be. That extends far beyond having annual air conditioner service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your air conditioner is running at its best.
Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Boynton Beach:
- 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. 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 choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
- Swap your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only improve 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 typically recommended to swap 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 provide a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they can likely better 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 taking care of, but it never hurts to receive 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.
