Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service

With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any sunshine, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That goes far beyond having annual air conditioner service too, because there are a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel comfortable even when your air conditioner is doing its.

Here are four that we find very helpful here in Albuquerque:

  • Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may 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 making its way outside too. There are a variety of fixes that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are relatively easy fixes for homeowners to do themselves.
  • Change your air conditioner filter. This is one of the most critical things you can do to not only boost your air conditioner’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your energy costs. 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 swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some can last even longer.
  • Add plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they could potentially 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 doing, but it never hurts to have 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 handled so your comfort isn’t conceded.
