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

November 24, 2015

The dipping temperatures in Holdrege aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s easy to daydream about the warmer temps, it’s critical to remember that you can continue to be 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 aren’t many things that will contribute as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service should be completed annually. After all, who wants to spend these colder months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the whole time?

Already check off your annual air conditioner service? Here are a couple other jobs you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

  • Energy audit — many energy companies will provide an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need fixed. You may be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to get out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors permit the opportunity for a lot of warm air to get 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 all good or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be allowing cold air inside. If you notice any problems, weatherstripping is easy to swap and can take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common culprits 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 basic as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

These three tips are just a place to start, 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 projects to do on the weekend.
