With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any daylight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That extends far beyond having 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 especially helpful here in Phoenix:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean quite a bit of air is leaving your home. And, 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 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 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 take care of it yourself. It’s normally recommended to swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some could last even longer.
- Buy plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they could likely improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of toxins that are emitted from a host of common household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Air conditioner service. This should be something that you’re already doing, but it never hurts to have a reminder. Having air conditioner service performed 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 conceded.
