With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any daylight, it can be tough 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 numerous things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your air conditioner is doing its.
Here are four that we find very helpful here in Tomball:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a lot of air is sneaking out of 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 options that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively easy fixes for homeowners to handle 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 bills. 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 switch 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 can likely improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of toxins 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 doing, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having air conditioner service performed 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.
