November 24, 2015

The dipping temperatures in Redford aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s simple to daydream about the warmer temperatures, it’s crucial 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 only a couple things that will contribute as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service should 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 season?

Already complete 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 provide an energy audit for your home so you can identify areas that need addressed. You could be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to get out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors offer the opportunity for a lot of warm air to make it’s way inside your home. However, when your door is shut, you may still have air making its way inside. 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 problems, weatherstripping is easy to swap and may take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common culprits for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on the age of your lights, 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 the beginning, but do note that there are other basic fixes you can do once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy things to do on the weekend.
