Comfort Maximized - From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service

December 11, 2015

With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s hardly any sunlight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfortable 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 cozy even when your air conditioner is doing its.

Here are four that we find especially helpful here in Sacramento:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, could mean a lot of air is leaving your home. It goes without saying that the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is heading outside too. There are various choices that can help you seal those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly basic fixes for homeowners to handle themselves.
  • Change 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 bills. 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 change 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 number 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 host of toxins 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 have 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 addressed so your comfort isn’t in trouble.

It doesn’t have to feel overwhelming to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in. Feel free to give us a call at 916-243-6714  to hear about any of these suggestions or find out more about air conditioners, our air conditioner service or anything else comfort related.
