Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service12/11/2015With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any sunlight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a cozy place to be. That spreads far beyond having annual air conditioner service too, because there are a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your air conditioner is operating at its peak. Here are a couple that we find especially helpful here in West Palm Beach: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean a lot 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 too. There are various options that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves. Swap your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most crucial 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 take care of 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. Buy plants. Indoor plants can provide a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they may likely improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of toxins 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 doing, but it never hurts to receive 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.
