With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunshine, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That spreads far beyond completing annual air conditioner service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your air conditioner is operating at its peak.
Here are four that we find very helpful here in Naples:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a great deal 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 going outside as well. There are a host of fixes that can help you seal 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 important 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 handle it yourself. It’s typically recommended to change your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some may last even longer.
- Get plants. Indoor plants can provide a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they could possibly boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of contaminants 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 done annually helps you be 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 compromised.
