With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunshine, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That extends far beyond doing annual air conditioner service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your air conditioner is running at its best.
Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Norco and St. Charles Parish:
- 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. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside as well. There are a variety of fixes that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty simple fixes for homeowners to handle themselves.
- Change your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most critical 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 do it yourself. It’s normally 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 variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they could possibly better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of contaminants 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 have a reminder. Having air conditioner service done 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.
