The plummeting temperatures in Kingsville aren’t leaving, and while it’s simple to daydream about the warmer temperatures, it’s critical to remember that you can continue to be just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a large role in this, which is why it’s so important to keep up with annual air conditioner service.
We do have to mention that there are only a couple things that will provide as much to your comfort during these months as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is recommended be done annually. After all, who wants to spend these chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the entire season?
Already complete your annual air conditioner service? Here are a couple other jobs you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — many energy companies will have an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need addressed. You could be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to escape.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors offer the opportunity for a lot of warm air to make it’s way inside your home. However, when your door is shut, you may still have air making its way in your home. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in working-order or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be allowing cold air inside. If you notice any issues, weatherstripping is simple to switch out and could take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks may be your recessed lighting. Depending on the age of your lights, they may be letting all the hot air in your home escape through your ceiling. Fixing this is as easy as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These handful tips are just the beginning, but do recognize that there are other simple fixes you can handle once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy jobs to do on the weekend.
