How to keep your Anaheim home comfortable during cooler months

Cooling

The dropping temperatures in Anaheim aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s easy to daydream about the warmer weather, it’s crucial to remember that you can remain 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 complete annual air conditioner service.

We do have to mention that there are only a couple things that will offer as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is suggested to 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 entire season?

Already check off 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 have an energy audit for your home so you can identify areas that need addressed. You could be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to sneak out.
  • 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 could still have air making its way in your home. 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 notice any concerns, weatherstripping is easy to swap 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 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 three tips are just a starting point, but do note 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 jobs to complete on the weekend.
