Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service12/11/2015With cooler temperatures 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 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 very helpful here in Thousand Oaks: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a lot 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 going outside too. There are various options that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty simple fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves. Switch 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 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 switch your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some can last even longer. Buy plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they could likely improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a variety of pollutants 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 have 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 tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
