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

November 24, 2015

The dipping temperatures in Katy aren’t leaving, and while it’s not hard to daydream about the warmer temps, it’s important 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 important to keep up with annual air conditioner service.

We do have to mention that there aren’t many things that will contribute 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 chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them warm the whole time?

Already complete your annual air conditioner service? Here are a handful of other jobs you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

  • Energy audit — a lot of energy companies will provide an energy audit for your home so you can identify areas that need addressed. You could 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 can still have air making its way inside. 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 uncover any problems, weatherstripping is simple to replace and can take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they might 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 the beginning, 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 jobs to accomplish on the weekend.
