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

The dropping temperatures in Vero Beach aren’t leaving, and while it’s not hard to daydream about the warmer temps, it’s critical 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 crucial to complete annual air conditioner service.

We do have to mention that there aren’t many things that will provide as much to your comfort this time of year as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service should be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend these chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the whole time?

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

  • Energy audit — most energy companies will provide an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need improving. You might be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to escape.
  • 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 may still have air making its way in your home. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in-tact or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be letting cold air inside. If you notice any issues, weatherstripping is basic to switch out and can take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks may 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 simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

These three tips are just the beginning, but do recognize that there are other easy fixes you can do once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy projects to accomplish on the weekend.
