Comfort Maximized - From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service

December 11, 2015

With colder weather settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any daylight, it can be difficult to always feel like your home is a comfy place to be. That extends far beyond doing 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 doing its.

Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Rocky Mount:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could 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 making its way outside too. There are various choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively easy fixes for homeowners to handle themselves.
  • Swap your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only increase 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 typically 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.
  • Add plants. Indoor plants can provide a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can potentially improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a number 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 done annually helps make 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 conceded.
