The plummeting temperatures in Montoursville aren’t leaving, and while it’s easy to dream about the warmer weather, it’s crucial to remember that you can stay 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 complete annual air conditioner service.
We do have to mention 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 done annually. After all, who wants to spend these cooler months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them warm the whole time?
Already done with your annual air conditioner service? Here are a couple other tasks you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — a lot of energy companies will have an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need fixed. You might be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to sneak out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors offer the opportunity for a lot of warm air to come in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you could 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 notice any concerns, 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 how old your lights are, they might be letting all the hot air in your home get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as basic as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These couple tips are just the beginning, but do recognize that there are other simple fixes you can do once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy projects to accomplish on the weekend.
