How to keep your Orange County home comfortable during cooler months

Cooling

The dipping temperatures in Orange County aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s easy to fantasize about the warmer temperatures, it’s critical to remember that you can stay just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a large role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to complete annual air conditioner service.

We do have to bring up the fact that there are few things that will contribute as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service should be done annually. After all, who wants to spend these cooler 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 handful of other jobs you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

  • Energy audit — most energy companies will have an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need addressed. You might be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to get out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, 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 permitting cold air inside. If you find any problems, weatherstripping is basic to swap and may take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common culprits for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on the age of your lights, they could 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 things to accomplish on the weekend.
