Three Tips to Keep Your Tucson Home Comfortable in the Cooler Months

The dipping temperatures in Tucson aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s easy to dream about the warmer temps, it’s crucial 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 vital to keep up with annual air conditioner service.

We do have to mention that there are few 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 is recommended be done annually. After all, who wants to spend these chilly months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them warm the whole 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 — many energy companies will offer an energy audit for your home so you can identify areas that need improving. You could be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to get out.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, 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 all good or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be letting cold air inside. If you notice any concerns, weatherstripping is basic to swap and could take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they could be letting all the hot air in your home sneak out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

These couple tips are just a place to start, 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 things to complete on the weekend.
