The plummeting temperatures in Pacheco aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s not hard to daydream about the warmer temps, it’s important to remember that you can continue to be 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 keep up with annual air conditioner service.
We do have to note that there aren’t many things that will offer as much to your comfort this season 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 covered the whole time?
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 offer an energy audit for your home so you can identify areas that need fixed. You might be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to get out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, 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 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 concerns, weatherstripping is easy 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 the light’s age, they might be letting all the hot air in your home get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These three tips are just a starting point, but do realize 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 complete on the weekend.
