How to keep your Murrieta home comfortable during cooler months11/24/2015The dropping temperatures in Murrieta aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s not hard to dream about the warmer temperatures, it’s critical 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 important to schedule annual air conditioner service. We do have to note that there are only a couple 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 suggested to be done annually. After all, who wants to spend these cooler months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the entire season? Already complete your annual air conditioner service? Here are a few other jobs you can do to help keep your home comfortable: Energy audit — many energy companies will offer an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need improving. You might be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to escape. Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, doors offer the opportunity for a lot of warm air to come in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you could 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 allowing cold air inside. If you uncover any problems, weatherstripping is simple to replace and can take care of the problem. Recessed lighting — one of the most common places 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 escape through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape. These couple tips are just a starting point, but do realize 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 jobs to complete on the weekend.
