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

November 24, 2015

The plummeting temperatures in Booneville aren’t leaving, and while it’s simple 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 huge role in this, which is why it’s so important to keep up with annual air conditioner service.

We do have to mention 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 completed annually. After all, who wants to spend these cooler 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 handful of other tasks you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

  • Energy audit — a lot of energy companies will provide an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need fixed. You could be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to get out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors permit the opportunity for a lot of warm air to get in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you may still have air making its way in your home. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in-tact 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 easy to swap and can 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 may be letting all the hot air in your home get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

These handful tips are just a starting point, but do recognize 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 jobs to do on the weekend.
