With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunlight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That goes far beyond completing 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 running at its best.
Here are a couple that we find very helpful here in Bartlesville:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean quite a bit 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 heading outside as well. There are a variety of choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively basic fixes for homeowners to take care of 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 money. 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 benefits, but some can last even longer.
- Buy plants. Indoor plants can provide a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can likely improve 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 handling, but it never hurts to get 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 handled so your comfort isn’t compromised.
