With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any daylight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That extends far beyond doing 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 doing its.
Here are four that we find particularly helpful here in Murrieta:
- 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. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside too. There are various choices that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty simple 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 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 handle it yourself. It’s typically recommended to swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some may last even longer.
- Get plants. Indoor plants can offer a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they could possibly improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of pollutants that are emitted from a variety 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 receive a reminder. Having air conditioner service completed annually helps you make certain 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 compromised.
