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 comfortable even when your air conditioner is running at its best. Here are a couple that we find especially helpful here in Pinellas County: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a great deal of air is sneaking out of your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is making its way outside too. There are a variety of options that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly simple fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves. Change your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most important 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 do it yourself. It’s typically 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 offer a number of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can potentially boost 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 taking care of, but it never hurts to get a reminder. Having air conditioner service done 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 compromised. It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
