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

November 24, 2015

The dipping temperatures in Belton aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s simple to dream about the warmer temps, it’s critical 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 complete annual air conditioner service.

We do have to mention that there are few 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 completed 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 jobs you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

  • Energy audit — many energy companies will have an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need fixed. You might be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to escape.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors allow the opportunity for a lot of warm air to get in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you could still have air making its way indoors. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in-tact or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be allowing cold air inside. If you notice any issues, weatherstripping is easy to replace and could take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks may be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they may be letting all the hot air in your home get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as easy as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

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