Three Tips to Keep Your Laguna Niguel Home Comfortable in the Cooler Months

November 24, 2015

The plummeting temperatures in Laguna Niguel aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s simple to fantasize about the warmer temperatures, it’s critical to remember that you can continue to be just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a big role in this, which is why it’s so vital to keep up with annual air conditioner service.

We do have to mention that there are few things that will provide as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is recommended be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend these chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them comfortable the entire time?

Already check off 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 have an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need addressed. You could be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to get out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors offer 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 allowing cold air inside. If you find any concerns, weatherstripping is simple to replace and may 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 easy as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

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