With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunlight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That extends far beyond completing annual air conditioner service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your air conditioner is doing its.
Here are four that we find especially helpful here in West Valley City:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean quite a bit of air is escaping your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside also. There are various choices that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty easy fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves.
- Switch 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 take care of it yourself. It’s normally recommended to swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some can last even longer.
- Buy plants. Indoor plants can offer a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they could likely improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of contaminants 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 receive a reminder. Having air conditioner service performed 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 conceded.
