With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunlight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That spreads far beyond having 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 doing its.
Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Chatsworth:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a lot of air is sneaking out of 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 variety of fixes that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
- Switch your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most critical 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 do it yourself. It’s typically recommended to switch 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 provide a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can likely boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of contaminants 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 get 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 fixed so your comfort isn’t conceded.
