The dipping temperatures in Norco and St. Charles Parish aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s simple to dream about the warmer weather, it’s crucial to remember that you can remain just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a big 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 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 comfortable the entire season?
Already complete your annual air conditioner service? Here are a few other things you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — a lot of energy companies will offer an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need improving. You might be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to get out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, doors allow the opportunity for a lot of warm air to get in to 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 simple to switch out and may take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks may be your recessed lighting. Depending on the age of your lights, they might be letting all the hot air in your home get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as basic as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These handful tips are just the beginning, but do note that there are other easy fixes you can complete once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy jobs to complete on the weekend.
