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 having annual air conditioner service too, because there are various 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 especially helpful here in Paso Robles: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a lot of air is escaping your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside also. There are a host of fixes that can help you shut those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively basic fixes for homeowners to take care of themselves. Swap 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 bills. 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 switch your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some may last even longer. Add plants. Indoor plants can provide a number 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 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 taking care of, but it never hurts to receive a reminder. Having air conditioner service done 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 conceded. It doesn’t have to feel hard to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
