The dropping temperatures in Boynton Beach aren’t leaving, and while it’s not hard to fantasize 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 important to complete annual air conditioner service.
We do have to bring up the fact that there are few things that will contribute 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 chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them warm the entire 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 find areas that need addressed. You may be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to sneak 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 could 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 allowing cold air inside. If you notice any concerns, weatherstripping is simple to switch out and can take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they could be letting all the hot air in your home escape through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These couple tips are just the beginning, but do recognize that there are other basic 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.
