Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service12/11/2015With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunshine, it can be difficult 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 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 very helpful here in Buellton: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean a great deal of air is sneaking out of your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside too. There are a host of options that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly easy 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 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. Buy plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can potentially better your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number of pollutants 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 taking care of, but it never hurts to get 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 handled so your comfort isn’t conceded. It doesn’t have to feel hard to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
