With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunlight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a cozy 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 doing its.
Here are a few that we find particularly helpful here in York:
- 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. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside as well. There are various options that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy fixes for homeowners to take care of 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.
- Get plants. Indoor plants can provide a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they could potentially boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of pollutants that are emitted from a variety of common household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Air conditioner service. This should be something that you’re already doing, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having air conditioner service performed 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 compromised.
