Nothing impresses guests more than a wonderful-smelling home. The holidays are the perfect time to fill your home with cozy holiday scents like cinnamon, ginger, and peppermint. Did you know that you can do this with the help of your air conditioner filter? At Enviromax Services Inc., we understand that you want your home to smell its best this holiday season, so we’ve listed some easy tips that will leave your guests wondering what your secret is:


  1. Gather Your Materials

All you need is a new air conditioner filter and your favorite holiday-themed essential oils. Some popular ones include vanilla, ginger, peppermint, and cinnamon. You can use one, or a combination, whichever you prefer.


  1. Prep the Filter

Add a few drops of your chosen essential oil(s) to the filter. Essential oils are completely safe to add to your air conditioner filter and will not affect its quality or lifespan. It is important to remember not to add too many essential oil drops, as you don’t want to overwhelm yourself or your guests with the scent. Adding 3-4 drops should be just enough to keep your home smelling wonderful without being too overpowering.


  1. Install the A/C Filter

Once you have added your chosen essential oil(s), it’s time to install the new air filter. Remove the old filter and place it in the outdoor garbage. Then, simply replace it with your scented filter. When installing your filter, it is important to note the arrows indicating which side to put in first. Be sure to follow this, as this is important to keep the filter working properly. Once finished, simply place the filter cap back on or refasten the grate.


  1. Run Your System

As air flows through the filter, the scent from the essential oil(s) will disperse throughout the home. Run your thermostat at a comfortable temperature, and you’re ready to impress your holiday guests with a wonderful smelling home.


There’s nothing like enjoying the company of family and friends in your home during the holidays. Your A/C filter can make the experience even more enjoyable by filling your home with the comforting scents of the season.  For the highest quality air filters, A/C repairs, or any other electrical services you may need in the Cypress, Texas area, give Enviromax Services Inc. a call at (713) 466-7555.
