How to keep your Osceola County home comfortable during cooler months

Cooling

The plummeting temperatures in Osceola County aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s easy to daydream about the warmer temps, it’s crucial to remember that you can remain just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a large role in this, which is why it’s so vital to complete annual air conditioner service.

We do have to note that there aren’t many things that will contribute as much to your comfort during these months 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 entire season?

Already done with your annual air conditioner service? Here are a handful of other things you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

  • Energy audit — a lot of 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 letting hot or cold air to sneak out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors permit the opportunity for a lot of warm air to come in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you can still have air making its way inside. 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 permitting cold air inside. If you notice any problems, weatherstripping is basic to swap and may take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they may be letting all the hot air in your home sneak out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as basic as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

These handful tips are just a place to start, but do realize that there are other basic fixes you can handle once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy things to do on the weekend.
