Comfort Maximized - From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service

December 11, 2015

With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any daylight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That spreads 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 four that we find particularly helpful here in Booneville:

  • 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. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside as well. There are a host of fixes that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy fixes for homeowners to handle themselves.
  • Switch your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most critical things you can do to not only increase 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 swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some could last even longer.
  • Add plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a host 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 various 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 have a reminder. Having air conditioner service completed annually helps you be 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 conceded.
