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

The dipping temperatures in Payson aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s easy to dream about the warmer temps, it’s important 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 mention that there are only a couple things that will offer as much to your comfort during these months as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is recommended be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend these cooler 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 handful of other jobs 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 find areas that need addressed. You could be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to escape.
  • 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 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 uncover any concerns, weatherstripping is easy to replace and can take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks could 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 basic as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

These couple tips are just a starting point, but do note that there are other simple fixes you can complete once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy things to do on the weekend.
