With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any daylight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That spreads far beyond having 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 running at its best.
Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Derby:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean a great deal of air is escaping your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside also. There are a host of fixes that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly simple fixes for homeowners to take care of 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 do it yourself. It’s typically recommended to change your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some can last even longer.
- Get plants. Indoor plants can provide a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they may likely 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 handling, 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 handled so your comfort isn’t conceded.
