With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any daylight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That spreads far beyond having annual air conditioner service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your air conditioner is doing its.
Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Northglenn:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean quite a bit of air is sneaking out of your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside as well. There are various choices that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty simple fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
- Change your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most critical things you can do to not only increase 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 typically recommended to switch your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some could last even longer.
- Add plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they could likely improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety 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 have a reminder. Having air conditioner service performed annually helps you make certain that your air conditioner is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be handled so your comfort isn’t compromised.
