The dipping temperatures in Manassas aren’t leaving, and while it’s easy to dream about the warmer temps, it’s crucial 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 bring up the fact that there aren’t many things that will provide as much to your comfort this time of year as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is recommended be completed 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 — many energy companies will have an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need fixed. You could be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to sneak 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 could 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 letting cold air inside. If you uncover any problems, weatherstripping is basic to switch out and can take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common culprits for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they could be letting all the hot air in your home sneak out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as easy as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These handful tips are just the beginning, but do realize that there are other easy fixes you can do once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy jobs to complete on the weekend.
