Three Tips to Keep Your West Palm Beach Home Comfortable in the Cooler Months

The plummeting temperatures in West Palm Beach aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s simple to daydream 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 huge role in this, which is why it’s so important to complete annual air conditioner service.

We do have to bring up the fact that there are only a couple things that will offer as much to your comfort during these months 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 colder months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them warm the entire season?

Already done with your annual air conditioner service? Here are a couple other things you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

  • Energy audit — many energy companies will have an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need improving. You could be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to get out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors allow the opportunity for a lot of warm air to make it’s way inside your home. However, when your door is shut, you can 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 uncover any problems, weatherstripping is basic to replace 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 age of your lights, they may 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 couple tips are just a place to start, but do note that there are other basic fixes you can handle once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy things to accomplish on the weekend.
