With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any daylight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That goes far beyond doing annual air conditioner service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your air conditioner is running at its best.
Here are a few that we find especially helpful here in Payson:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a great deal of air is leaving your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside too. There are various options that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic 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 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 usually recommended to switch your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some may last even longer.
- Buy plants. Indoor plants can provide a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they may likely improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of toxins 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 receive 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 addressed so your comfort isn’t in trouble.
