The dropping temperatures in Bend aren’t leaving, and while it’s not hard to dream about the warmer weather, it’s crucial 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 vital to schedule annual air conditioner service.
We do have to bring up the fact that there are few things that will provide as much to your comfort this time of year as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is suggested to be completed annually. After all, who wants to spend these chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them comfortable the entire season?
Already done with your annual air conditioner service? Here are a couple other things you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — a lot of energy companies will have an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need improving. You could be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to sneak out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors permit the opportunity for a lot of warm air to get in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you could still have air making its way inside. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in-tact or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be letting cold air inside. If you find any issues, weatherstripping is simple to swap and could take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on the age of your lights, 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 couple tips are just the beginning, but do note that there are other simple fixes you can handle once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy projects to accomplish on the weekend.
