The dropping temperatures in Pflugerville aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s easy to daydream about the warmer weather, it’s important 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 crucial to schedule annual air conditioner service.
We do have to mention that there aren’t many things that will provide as much to your comfort this season 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 covered the whole time?
Already done with your annual air conditioner service? Here are a few other things you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — most energy companies will have an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need addressed. You might be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to escape.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors permit 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 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 permitting cold air inside. If you notice any problems, weatherstripping is easy 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 might be letting all the hot air in your home get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as easy as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These three 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 things to accomplish on the weekend.
