With winter 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 comfy place to be. That goes far beyond having annual air conditioner service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your air conditioner is running at its best.
Here are a couple that we find very helpful here in Hamilton:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean quite a bit of air is escaping 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 a host of options that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively simple fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
- Change 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 on your energy costs. 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 change your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some can last even longer.
- Get plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they could possibly improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host 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 taking care of, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having air conditioner service done annually helps you be sure 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 compromised.
