With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunlight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a cozy place to be. That extends far beyond having annual air conditioner service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your air conditioner is operating at its peak.
Here are a few that we find especially helpful here in Delray Beach:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean a lot of air is sneaking out of your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside as well. There are a variety of choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty easy fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
- Change your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most critical 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 handle 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 can last even longer.
- Buy plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they could likely boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of pollutants that are emitted from various common household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Air conditioner service. This should be something that you’re already handling, but it never hurts to get a reminder. Having air conditioner service completed 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.
