The plummeting temperatures in Muldrow aren’t leaving, and while it’s not hard to daydream 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 are few things that will offer as much to your comfort during these months as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service should be completed 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 check off your annual air conditioner service? Here are a handful of other jobs 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 might be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to escape.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors offer the opportunity for a lot of warm air to come in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you can still have air making its way in your home. 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 uncover any concerns, weatherstripping is simple to swap and can take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks can 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 handful tips are just a starting point, but do note that there are other simple 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.
