Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t mean that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. This is the time of year when everyone is in between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of effort throughout the summer, it still needs a little attention before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on task with your air conditioner maintenance can make a world of a difference in the comfort of your home. That, as well as these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Boosting your thermostat
temperature during these days moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable indoors. Turning off your air conditioner completely will not save you energy in the long run, but instead it just makes it more difficult to turn your system back on when you need it again later in fall. Setting your thermostat to an acceptable temperature is a good way to maintain a balance in your home as warmer weather arrives.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave additional debris and gunk around your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or a lot of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the time to clean up your post-winter yard, at least confirm that the area around your system is clear. Debris can hinder air-flow for your air conditioner
, causing your system to work harder than it needs to.
Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance.
