With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any daylight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That extends far beyond completing annual air conditioner service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your air conditioner is operating at its peak.
Here are a couple that we find particularly helpful here in Muldrow:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a lot of air is escaping your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside as well. There are various fixes that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic fixes for homeowners to handle themselves.
- Switch 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 on your bills. Plus, you don’t need to have your air conditioner service technician to do it, you can handle it yourself. It’s usually recommended to swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some may last even longer.
- Buy plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they may likely better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host 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 doing, but it never hurts to get a reminder. Having air conditioner service completed 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.
