The dropping temperatures in Mobile aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s not hard to dream about the warmer temperatures, it’s important 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 important to complete annual air conditioner service.
We do have to mention that there are few things that will contribute as much to your comfort during these months as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service should be done 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 check off your annual air conditioner service? Here are a couple other jobs you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — many energy companies will provide an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need improving. You might be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to sneak out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors allow 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 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 permitting cold air inside. If you find any issues, weatherstripping is easy to replace and may take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on the age of your lights, 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 the beginning, but do realize that there are other simple fixes you can handle once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy things to complete on the weekend.
