Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Air Conditioner Service12/11/2015With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s very little any daylight, it can be hard to always feel like your home is a cozy 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 comfy even when your air conditioner is operating at its peak. Here are a few that we find very helpful here in Port Saint Lucie: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may 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 going outside also. There are a host of fixes that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are pretty easy fixes for homeowners to do themselves. Change 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 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 usually recommended to swap your air conditioner filter every one or two months to get the most out of its benefits, but some may last even longer. Buy plants. Indoor plants can offer a host of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually appealing, they can possibly boost 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.
