Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service12/11/2015With winter settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any daylight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a cozy place to be. That goes far beyond doing annual air conditioner service too, because there are numerous things you can do to help make your home feel cozy even when your air conditioner is operating at its peak. Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Laguna Hills: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean quite a bit of air is escaping your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside as well. There are a host of fixes that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic fixes for homeowners to do themselves. Switch your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most critical things you can do to not only boost your air conditioner’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your bills. 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 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 appealing, they can likely improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host 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 have a reminder. Having air conditioner service completed annually helps you be 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.
