With winter 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 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 a few that we find especially helpful here in Bossier City:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean a great deal of air is sneaking out of your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside too. There are a host of fixes that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy fixes for homeowners to handle themselves.
- Switch your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only increase 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 handle it yourself. It’s usually recommended to change your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some may last even longer.
- Get plants. Indoor plants can provide a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they may possibly improve 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 doing, 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 fixed so your comfort isn’t compromised.
It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 800-COOLING to talk about any of these suggestions or find out more about air conditioners, our air conditioner service or anything else comfort related.
