Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service12/11/2015With 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 comfortable 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 comfy even when your air conditioner is running at its best. Here are a couple that we find especially helpful here in Murrieta: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a lot of air is sneaking out of your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside as well. There are various fixes that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty basic fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves. Change your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most critical things you can do to not only boost 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 do it yourself. It’s usually recommended to switch your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some may last even longer. Get plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they may possibly better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety 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 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 addressed so your comfort isn’t in trouble. It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
