How to keep your Mobile home comfortable during cooler months11/24/2015The plummeting temperatures in Mobile aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s simple to fantasize about the warmer weather, it’s important to remember that you can stay 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 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 cooler months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the entire season? Already complete your annual air conditioner service? Here are a handful of 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 addressed. You could be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to get out. Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, doors permit 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 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 uncover any issues, weatherstripping is simple to swap and may take care of the problem. Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks may be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they may 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 starting point, but do realize that there are other basic fixes you can handle once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy projects to accomplish on the weekend.
