Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service12/11/2015With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunlight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That extends far beyond having annual air conditioner service too, because there are various things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your air conditioner is doing its. Here are a couple that we find particularly helpful here in Safford: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean quite a bit 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 also. There are a variety of fixes that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively basic fixes for homeowners to do themselves. Swap 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 normally recommended to swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some can last even longer. Buy plants. Indoor plants can provide a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they could potentially boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of toxins 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 performed annually helps make 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. It doesn’t have to feel tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
