With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any daylight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfortable 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 a couple that we find especially helpful here in Kirkfield Heating:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a great deal of air is leaving your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside also. There are various choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
- Change 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 do it yourself. It’s normally 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.
- Add plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they can potentially better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number 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 doing, but it never hurts to receive 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 fixed so your comfort isn’t conceded.
