Three Tips to Keep Your Buellton Home Comfortable in the Cooler Months

The dipping temperatures in Buellton aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s easy to dream about the warmer temperatures, it’s critical to remember that you can continue to be just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a big role in this, which is why it’s so important to schedule annual air conditioner service.

We do have to bring up the fact that there aren’t many things that will offer as much to your comfort this time of year as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is recommended be done annually. After all, who wants to spend these cooler months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them warm 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 — a lot of energy companies will have an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need fixed. You might be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to escape.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors permit the opportunity for a lot of warm air to make it’s way inside your home. However, when your door is shut, you can 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 permitting cold air inside. If you find any issues, weatherstripping is easy to switch out and can take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas 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 get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as easy as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

These handful tips are just a starting point, but do note 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 projects to complete on the weekend.
