The dipping temperatures in Bishop aren’t leaving, and while it’s simple to daydream about the warmer temperatures, it’s important to remember that you can stay just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a big role in this, which is why it’s so vital to complete annual air conditioner service.
We do have to note that there are few things that will provide as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is recommended be completed annually. After all, who wants to spend these colder 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 tasks you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — most energy companies will provide an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need improving. You might be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to sneak out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, 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-tact or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be allowing cold air inside. If you notice any concerns, weatherstripping is simple to swap and could take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on the age of your lights, they might 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 place to start, but do recognize that there are other easy fixes you can handle once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy projects to complete on the weekend.
