How to keep your Safford home comfortable during cooler months11/24/2015The dipping temperatures in Safford aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s not hard to dream 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 big role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to schedule annual air conditioner service. We do have to mention that there are few things that will provide as much to your comfort this season 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 chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them comfortable the entire season? Already done with your annual air conditioner service? Here are a couple other jobs 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 find areas that need improving. You could be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to get out. Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors offer the opportunity for a lot of warm air to make it’s way inside your home. However, when your door is shut, you can 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 letting cold air inside. If you find any issues, weatherstripping is basic to switch out and could take care of the problem. Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks may be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they could be letting all the hot air in your home escape through your ceiling. Fixing this is as basic as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape. These three tips are just a place to start, but do recognize that there are other easy fixes you can handle once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy jobs to accomplish on the weekend.
