The dipping temperatures in Eastland aren’t leaving, and while it’s easy to daydream about the warmer temperatures, it’s important to remember that you can remain just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a large role in this, which is why it’s so vital to complete annual air conditioner service.
We do have to bring up the fact that there are only a couple things that will provide as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is suggested to be completed annually. After all, who wants to spend these cooler months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the whole time?
Already check off your annual air conditioner service? Here are a handful of other jobs you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — many energy companies will provide an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need improving. You could be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to get out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors permit the opportunity for a lot of warm air to get in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you can still have air making its way indoors. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in-tact or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be allowing cold air inside. If you notice any concerns, weatherstripping is basic to switch out and could take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they might be letting all the hot air in your home sneak out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as basic as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These couple tips are just a starting point, but do note that there are other basic fixes you can handle once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy projects to do on the weekend.
