How to keep your Stuart home comfortable during cooler months

Cooling

The plummeting temperatures in Stuart aren’t leaving, and while it’s easy to daydream about the warmer temps, 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 crucial to keep up with annual air conditioner service.

We do have to mention that there aren’t many things that will offer as much to your comfort during these months 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 few 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 find areas that need improving. You could be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to escape.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, doors offer 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 inside. 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 letting cold air inside. If you find any problems, 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 how old your lights are, they could be letting all the hot air in your home sneak 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 jobs to do on the weekend.
