The dipping temperatures in Northglenn aren’t leaving, and while it’s easy to dream about the warmer temperatures, it’s critical to remember that you can remain 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 complete annual air conditioner service.
We do have to bring up the fact that there are few 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 should be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend these cooler months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the entire time?
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 offer an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need fixed. You might 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 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 easy to replace and may take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on the age of your lights, 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 three tips are just a starting point, 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 jobs to complete on the weekend.
