The plummeting temperatures in Fort Lauderdale aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s easy to dream about the warmer temperatures, it’s critical 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 vital to keep up with annual air conditioner service.
We do have to mention that there aren’t many things that will offer 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 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 — a lot of energy companies will have 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 get out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, 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 can 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 permitting cold air inside. If you notice 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 can be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they could be letting all the hot air in your home sneak out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as basic 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 things to complete on the weekend.
