Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service12/11/2015With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunlight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a cozy place to be. That spreads far beyond completing 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 four that we find particularly helpful here in Santee: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a lot of air is escaping your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside also. There are various choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy fixes for homeowners to do themselves. Switch your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most important 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 take care of it yourself. It’s usually recommended to switch your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some could last even longer. Get plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they could possibly better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host 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 taking care of, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having air conditioner service completed annually helps you make certain 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 in trouble. It doesn’t have to feel tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
