Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t indicate that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. This is the time of year when everyone switches between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of work through the summer, it still needs a little maintenance before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on schedule with your air conditioner maintenance can make a big difference in the comfort of your home. That, plus these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Boosting your thermostat
temperature during this season of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable in your home. Turning off your air conditioner completely won’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it will just make it harder to turn your system back on when you need it again later in fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable temperature is a simple way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave excess debris and gunk close to your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or lots of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the chance 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 on track with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is key for the longevity of your system. Check in with our professionals at Assured Appliance and Heating & Air and they will thoroughly inspect your system to assure that everything is working properly; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter undamaged. Our technicians will check for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a big problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
