Three Tips to Keep Your Cape Coral Home Comfortable in the Cooler Months

The dipping temperatures in Cape Coral aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s not hard 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 contribute 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 comfortable the whole time?

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 — many energy companies will have an energy audit for your home so you can identify areas that need improving. You may be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to get out.
  • 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 may still have air making its way in your home. 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 find any concerns, weatherstripping is simple to switch out and can take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks can 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 recognize that there are other simple fixes you can handle once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy projects to complete on the weekend.
