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

The dropping temperatures in Murrieta aren’t leaving, and while it’s not hard to dream about the warmer temperatures, it’s critical to remember that you can stay just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a big role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to schedule annual air conditioner service.

We do have to mention 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 completed 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 couple other jobs 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 identify 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 allow 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 indoors. 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 uncover any issues, weatherstripping is easy to replace and could 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 escape through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

These couple tips are just the beginning, but do realize that there are other simple fixes you can complete once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy jobs to do on the weekend.
