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 hard to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That spreads far beyond having annual air conditioner service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your air conditioner is doing its. Here are a few that we find particularly helpful here in Upland: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean quite a bit of air is sneaking out of 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 a host of choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively simple fixes for homeowners to do themselves. Change your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most important 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 handle it yourself. It’s usually recommended to swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some could last even longer. Buy plants. Indoor plants can provide a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they may potentially improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of contaminants 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 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 overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
