Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service12/11/2015With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any sunlight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That extends 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 operating at its peak. Here are a couple that we find especially helpful here in Bakersfield: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, can mean a great deal of air is leaving your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside as well. There are a variety of choices that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively basic fixes for homeowners to handle themselves. Swap 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 take care of it yourself. It’s normally recommended to swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its performance, but some may last even longer. Buy plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they could possibly boost your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host 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 receive a reminder. Having air conditioner service performed annually helps make 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 compromised. It doesn’t have to feel hard to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
