The dropping temperatures in Chadron aren’t leaving, and while it’s simple to daydream about the warmer weather, it’s crucial to remember that you can remain just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a big role in this, which is why it’s so important to complete 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 during these months as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is suggested to be done annually. After all, who wants to spend these chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them warm the whole time?
Already done with your annual air conditioner service? Here are a couple 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 identify areas that need addressed. You might be surprised what areas are allowing 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 make it’s way inside 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-tact or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be letting cold air inside. If you find any concerns, weatherstripping is easy to swap and can take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks may be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they may be letting all the hot air in your home escape through your ceiling. Fixing this is as easy as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These couple tips are just a place to start, but do realize that there are other simple 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.
