With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunlight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a cozy place to be. That goes far beyond doing annual air conditioner service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your air conditioner is doing its.
Here are four that we find particularly helpful here in Cape Coral:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a great deal 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 also. There are various options that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively simple fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
- Swap your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most important 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 do it yourself. It’s usually recommended to switch 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 provide a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can likely boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety 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 taking care of, but it never hurts to have a reminder. Having air conditioner service done 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 in trouble.
