Comfort Maximized - From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service

December 11, 2015

With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any daylight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That extends far beyond doing 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 four that we find very helpful here in Central Point:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may 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 heading outside as well. There are a variety of choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic fixes for homeowners to handle 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 money. Plus, you don’t need to have your air conditioner service technician to do it, you can handle 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.
  • Add plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they could likely better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of toxins 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 doing, 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 fixed so your comfort isn’t conceded.

It doesn’t have to feel tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 514-600-5499  to learn more about any of these suggestions or find out more about air conditioners, our air conditioner service or anything else comfort related.
