The dipping temperatures in Phoenix aren’t leaving, and while it’s simple to daydream about the warmer weather, it’s critical to remember that you can remain just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a huge role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to keep up with annual air conditioner service.
We do have to note that there aren’t many things that will provide as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is recommended be done annually. After all, who wants to spend these cooler months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the entire season?
Already complete your annual air conditioner service? Here are a few other tasks you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — a lot of energy companies will offer an energy audit for your home so you can identify areas that need improving. You might be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to get out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors allow the opportunity for a lot of warm air to get in to 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 all good 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 replace and could take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common culprits for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on the age of your lights, they could be letting all the hot air in your home get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as basic as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These handful tips are just a place to start, but do note that there are other easy fixes you can handle once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy things to do on the weekend.
