How to keep your Boynton Beach home comfortable during cooler months

The dipping temperatures in Boynton Beach aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s easy to dream about the warmer weather, it’s crucial to remember that you can continue to be just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a huge role in this, which is why it’s so vital to schedule annual air conditioner service.

We do have to mention that there aren’t many things that will contribute as much to your comfort during these months as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is recommended be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend these colder 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 couple other tasks you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

  • Energy audit — a lot of energy companies will provide an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need fixed. You might be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to escape.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, doors allow the opportunity for a lot of warm air to make it’s way inside your home. However, when your door is shut, you may still have air making its way inside. 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 find any problems, weatherstripping is basic 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 might be letting all the hot air in your home sneak 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 do once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy things to do on the weekend.
