The dipping temperatures in Cape Coral aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s simple to fantasize about the warmer temps, it’s crucial to remember that you can stay just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a big role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to keep up with annual air conditioner service.

We do have to mention that there are few things that will contribute as much to your comfort this time of year as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is suggested to be done annually. After all, who wants to spend these chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the whole time?

Already check off your annual air conditioner service? Here are a couple other things 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 identify areas that need addressed. You may be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to escape.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, doors offer the opportunity for a lot of warm air to come in to 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.
