The dropping temperatures in Greensburg aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s not hard to daydream about the warmer weather, it’s crucial to remember that you can remain just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a big role in this, which is why it’s so vital to complete annual air conditioner service.
We do have to note that there are only a couple things that will offer as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is recommended be completed annually. After all, who wants to spend these chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them comfortable the whole time?
Already complete your annual air conditioner service? Here are a handful of other things 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 identify areas that need fixed. You might be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to escape.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors offer the opportunity for a lot of warm air to get in to 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 all good 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 easy to swap and can take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks may be your recessed lighting. Depending on the age of your lights, they could be letting all the hot air in your home escape through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These couple tips are just the beginning, 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 things to accomplish on the weekend.
