How to keep your Naples home comfortable during cooler months

Cooling

The plummeting temperatures in Naples aren’t leaving, and while it’s simple to dream 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 large role in this, which is why it’s so important to keep up with annual air conditioner service.

We do have to note that there are only a couple things that will provide as much to your comfort this season 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 covered the entire season?

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

  • Energy audit — most energy companies will offer 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 sneak out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors permit the opportunity for a lot of warm air to make it’s way inside your home. However, when your door is shut, you could still have air making its way indoors. 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 letting cold air inside. If you find any issues, weatherstripping is basic to switch out and may 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 might 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 handful tips are just a starting point, but do note that there are other simple fixes you can do once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy things to do on the weekend.
