The dipping temperatures in Reinholds aren’t leaving, and while it’s simple to dream about the warmer temps, it’s crucial to remember that you can remain just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a huge role in this, which is why it’s so important to schedule annual air conditioner service.
We do have to note that there are few things that will provide as much to your comfort this time of year as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service should be completed annually. After all, who wants to spend these cooler months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them warm the entire season?
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 find areas that need improving. You could be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to get out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors allow the opportunity for a lot of warm air to come in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you may still have air making its way indoors. Check to see if your weatherstripping is all good or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be allowing cold air inside. If you find any concerns, weatherstripping is simple to switch out and could take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common culprits for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they could 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 three tips are just a starting point, but do note that there are other simple fixes you can complete once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy jobs to do on the weekend.
