The dipping temperatures in Shreveport aren’t leaving, and while it’s not hard to dream about the warmer temperatures, it’s critical to remember that you can continue to be just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a huge role in this, which is why it’s so important to keep up with annual air conditioner service.
We do have to note that there are few things that will offer as much to your comfort this season 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 cooler months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the entire season?
Already done with your annual air conditioner service? Here are a handful of other things 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 allowing hot or cold air to get out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors permit 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 indoors. 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 uncover any issues, weatherstripping is easy to replace and can take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they might 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 couple tips are just a place to start, but do realize that there are other easy fixes you can complete once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy projects to do on the weekend.
