Three Tips to Keep Your Crestview Home Comfortable in the Cooler Months

The plummeting temperatures in Crestview aren’t leaving, and while it’s not hard to fantasize about the warmer temps, it’s important 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 important to complete annual air conditioner service.

We do have to bring up the fact 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 should be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend these chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the whole time?

Already done with your annual air conditioner service? Here are a couple other jobs you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

  • Energy audit — most energy companies will offer an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need fixed. You may be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to escape.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors offer 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 in working-order or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be allowing cold air inside. If you notice any issues, weatherstripping is easy to swap and may take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks may be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they might 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 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 do on the weekend.
