The dipping temperatures in Carson City aren’t leaving, and while it’s not hard 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 large role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to keep up with annual air conditioner service.
We do have to mention that there aren’t many things that will contribute as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service should be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend these chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them warm the entire time?
Already complete your annual air conditioner service? Here are a handful of other tasks 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 fixed. You could be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to sneak out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors permit the opportunity for a lot of warm air to make it’s way inside your home. However, when your door is shut, you may still have air making its way in your home. 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 find any problems, weatherstripping is simple to replace 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 age of your lights, they might be letting all the hot air in your home get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These couple tips are just a place to start, but do realize that there are other easy fixes you can complete once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy jobs to do on the weekend.
