Cooling

The plummeting temperatures in Muskogee aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s simple to daydream about the warmer temperatures, it’s important 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 schedule annual air conditioner service.

We do have to note 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 recommended be done annually. After all, who wants to spend these cooler months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the entire time?

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

  • Energy audit — a lot of energy companies will offer an energy audit for your home so you can identify areas that need addressed. You might be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to get out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors offer 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 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 permitting cold air inside. If you find any problems, weatherstripping is basic to swap and could take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common culprits for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, 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 starting point, 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.
