The dropping temperatures in the Rio Grande Valley aren’t leaving, and while it’s simple to daydream about the warmer weather, it’s critical to remember that you can remain just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a huge role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to keep up with annual air conditioner service.
We do have to note that there are few things that will offer 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 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 handful of other tasks 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 identify areas that need fixed. You may be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to get out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, doors offer the opportunity for a lot of warm air to get in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you can 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 uncover any issues, weatherstripping is simple to replace 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 get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as easy as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These handful tips are just a starting point, but do recognize that there are other basic fixes you can complete once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy things to complete on the weekend.
