How to keep your Crestview home comfortable during cooler months11/24/2015The plummeting temperatures in Crestview aren’t leaving, and while it’s not hard to fantasize about the warmer weather, it’s important to remember that you can stay 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 few things that will contribute as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is suggested to 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 entire time? Already done with your annual air conditioner service? Here are a few other jobs you can do to help keep your home comfortable: Energy audit — most energy companies will provide 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 get out. Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, doors offer 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 allowing cold air inside. If you find any issues, weatherstripping is easy to swap and may take care of the problem. Recessed lighting — one of the most common places 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 simple 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 complete once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy things to complete on the weekend.
