November 24, 2015

The dipping temperatures in Grove City aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s easy to daydream about the warmer temperatures, it’s critical to remember that you can remain 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 bring up the fact that there are only a couple things that will provide as much to your comfort during these months as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is recommended be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend these chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them warm the whole time?

Already check off your annual air conditioner service? Here are a handful of other jobs 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 could be surprised what areas are letting 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 come 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 in working-order or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be permitting cold air inside. If you find any concerns, weatherstripping is easy to switch out and may take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common places 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 escape through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

These couple tips are just the beginning, but do recognize that there are other easy fixes you can do once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy things to accomplish on the weekend.
