The plummeting temperatures in Omaha aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s easy to fantasize about the warmer temps, it’s important to remember that you can continue to be 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 schedule annual air conditioner service.
We do have to mention that there are few things that will contribute as much to your comfort during these months as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is recommended be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend these colder months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them warm the entire time?
Already done with your annual air conditioner service? Here are a couple other tasks 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 uncover areas that need fixed. You may be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to get out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors allow the opportunity for a lot of warm air to come in to 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 all good or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be letting cold air inside. If you notice any issues, weatherstripping is simple to switch out and can take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they could be letting all the hot air in your home sneak out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These three tips are just the beginning, but do recognize that there are other simple fixes you can do once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy projects to complete on the weekend.
