The dipping temperatures in Georgetown aren’t leaving, and while it’s not hard to fantasize about the warmer temps, it’s important to remember that you can stay 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 complete annual air conditioner service.
We do have to note that there aren’t many 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 suggested to be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend these colder months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the entire time?
Already check off your annual air conditioner service? Here are a couple other tasks you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — many energy companies will offer an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need addressed. You could be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to get out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, doors allow the opportunity for a lot of warm air to come in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you can still have air making its way inside. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in-tact or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be letting cold air inside. If you notice any problems, weatherstripping is basic to switch out and can take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks may be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they might be letting all the hot air in your home sneak out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These handful tips are just a starting point, but do realize 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 projects to complete on the weekend.
