Three Tips to Keep Your Englewood Home Comfortable in the Cooler Months

The dipping temperatures in Englewood aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s simple to dream about the warmer weather, it’s critical to remember that you can continue to be 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 schedule annual air conditioner service.

We do have to note that there are few things that will provide as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service should be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend these chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them comfortable the whole time?

Already done with your annual air conditioner service? Here are a few other tasks you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

  • Energy audit — most energy companies will have an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need improving. You might be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to sneak out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, 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 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 permitting cold air inside. If you find any problems, weatherstripping is simple to swap and can take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks may be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they could 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 handful tips are just a starting point, but do realize 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 things to complete on the weekend.
