The dropping temperatures in Central Point aren’t leaving, and while it’s easy to daydream about the warmer weather, it’s crucial to remember that you can stay just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a large role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to keep up with annual air conditioner service.
We do have to bring up the fact that there are only a couple things that will provide as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service should be done annually. After all, who wants to spend these cooler months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them comfortable the entire time?
Already done with 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 have an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need improving. You may be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to sneak out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors offer 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 permitting cold air inside. If you find any concerns, weatherstripping is simple to switch out and could take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, 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 place to start, but do note 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 things to do on the weekend.
