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

The dropping temperatures in Abilene aren’t leaving, and while it’s simple to fantasize 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 big 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 aren’t many things that will contribute as much to your comfort during these months as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service should be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend these cooler months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them comfortable the whole time?

Already check off your annual air conditioner service? Here are a few other things you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

  • Energy audit — many energy companies will provide an energy audit for your home so you can identify areas that need addressed. You may be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to escape.
  • 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 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 letting cold air inside. If you uncover any issues, weatherstripping is basic to replace and can take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common culprits for air leaks may be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, 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.

These couple tips are just a starting point, but do realize that there are other easy fixes you can complete once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy projects to do on the weekend.
