With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunshine, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That goes far beyond having 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 Hattiesburg:
- Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can 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 making its way outside too. There are a host of options that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly simple fixes for homeowners to take care of 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 do it yourself. It’s typically recommended to change your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some could last even longer.
- Buy plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they can possibly better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of contaminants 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 handling, but it never hurts to receive 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 handled so your comfort isn’t compromised.
