The dipping temperatures in Safford aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s simple to dream about the warmer temperatures, it’s important 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 important to keep up with annual air conditioner service.
We do have to bring up the fact 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 suggested to be scheduled 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 handful of other jobs 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 find areas that need fixed. You could be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to sneak 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 may still have air making its way indoors. 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 issues, weatherstripping is basic to swap and may take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common culprits for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they may be letting all the hot air in your home escape through your ceiling. Fixing this is as easy as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These three tips are just a place to start, 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.
