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 spreads far beyond having annual air conditioner service too, because there are a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your air conditioner is running at its best.
Here are four that we find especially helpful here in Shreveport:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a lot of air is leaving your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside as well. There are various fixes that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly simple fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
- Switch your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only increase 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 performance, but some could last even longer.
- Buy plants. Indoor plants can provide a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they may potentially improve 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 taking care of, but it never hurts to get a reminder. Having air conditioner service done 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.
