Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service

With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunlight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfortable 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 cozy even when your air conditioner is running at its best.

Here are four that we find particularly helpful here in Opelika:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a lot of air is leaving 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 host of options that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively basic 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 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 swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some can last even longer.
  • Get plants. Indoor plants can provide a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they can potentially better 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 doing, 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 addressed so your comfort isn’t compromised.

It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
