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 spreads far beyond completing annual air conditioner service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your air conditioner is doing its.
Here are a few that we find particularly helpful here in Williamsport:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may 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 too. There are various choices that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
- Swap 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 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 usually recommended to swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some may last even longer.
- Get plants. Indoor plants can provide a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can possibly boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number 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 handling, but it never hurts to have 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 fixed so your comfort isn’t in trouble.
