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

November 24, 2015

The dipping temperatures in Marshfield aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s not hard to dream 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 big role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to keep up with 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 season as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service should be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend these cooler months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the whole time?

Already complete your annual air conditioner service? Here are a handful of other things 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 could be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to sneak out.
  • 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 may still have air making its way indoors. Check to see if your weatherstripping is all good or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be permitting cold air inside. If you notice any issues, weatherstripping is basic to swap and may take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they might 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 couple tips are just a place to start, but do recognize that there are other easy fixes you can complete once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy projects to do on the weekend.
