With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunshine, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That extends far beyond doing 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 operating at its peak.
Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Omaha:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean quite a bit of air is leaving 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 various fixes that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty basic 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 boost your air conditioner’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your energy costs. Plus, you don’t need to have your air conditioner service technician to do it, you can do it yourself. It’s typically recommended to switch your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some can last even longer.
- Add plants. Indoor plants can provide a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can potentially improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of pollutants 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 done annually helps you make certain 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.
