Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service12/11/2015With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any daylight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That spreads far beyond doing annual air conditioner service too, because there are a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your air conditioner is running at its best. Here are four that we find especially helpful here in Tampa Bay: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean quite a bit of air is leaving your home. Not to mention that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside too. There are various fixes that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly simple 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 improve 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 may last even longer. Add plants. Indoor plants can offer a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually attractive, they may possibly 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 get a reminder. Having air conditioner service performed annually helps you make certain 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 in trouble. It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
