The dropping temperatures in Winnipeg aren’t leaving, and while it’s simple to dream about the warmer weather, it’s critical to remember that you can remain just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a huge role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to schedule annual air conditioner service.
We do have to note 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 chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the entire time?
Already done with your annual air conditioner service? Here are a handful of other tasks you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — most energy companies will offer an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need addressed. You might be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to get out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, 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 inside. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in-tact or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be letting cold air inside. If you notice any issues, weatherstripping is simple to switch out and may take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they could be letting all the hot air in your home escape through your ceiling. Fixing this is as basic as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These handful tips are just the beginning, but do recognize 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 do on the weekend.
