With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any sunlight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That extends far beyond completing annual air conditioner service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your air conditioner is running at its best.
Here are four that we find especially helpful here in Cottonwood & Prescott:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a great deal of air is escaping your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside also. There are a variety of options 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 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 usually recommended to change your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some could last even longer.
- Buy plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they could possibly boost 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 taking care of, but it never hurts to get a reminder. Having air conditioner service completed annually helps you be sure that your air conditioner is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be addressed so your comfort isn’t in trouble.
