How to keep your Cape Coral home comfortable during cooler months11/24/2015The dipping temperatures in Cape Coral aren’t leaving, and while it’s easy to dream about the warmer temperatures, it’s important to remember that you can continue to be just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a large role in this, which is why it’s so important to complete annual air conditioner service. We do have to bring up the fact 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 should be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend these chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them comfortable the whole time? Already complete your annual air conditioner service? Here are a handful of 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 identify areas that need fixed. You may be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to escape. 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 in your home. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in working-order or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be allowing cold air inside. If you find any concerns, weatherstripping is easy to switch out and can take care of the problem. Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they could be letting all the hot air in your home sneak out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as easy as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape. These couple tips are just a place to start, but do realize 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 jobs to complete on the weekend.
