Three Tips to Keep Your Grand Prairie Home Comfortable in the Cooler Months

November 24, 2015

The dipping temperatures in Grand Prairie aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s not hard to dream about the warmer weather, 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 crucial to complete annual air conditioner service.

We do have to note 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 should be done 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 complete your annual air conditioner service? Here are a couple other things you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

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

These couple tips are just a starting point, but do realize 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 things to complete on the weekend.
