The dropping temperatures in Litchfield Park aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s easy to fantasize about the warmer temperatures, 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 vital to schedule annual air conditioner service.

That’s why air conditioner service is recommended be completed annually. After all, who wants to spend these chilly 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 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 uncover areas that need addressed. You might be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to get out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors allow 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 permitting cold air inside. If you notice any issues, weatherstripping is easy to swap and could take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common places 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 simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
