Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t indicate that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. We’re in the time of year when everyone goes back and forth 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 love 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, as well as these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Turn up your thermostat temperature.
Turning up your thermostat
temperature during these times of 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 actually makes it harder to turn your system back on when you need it again next fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable temperature is an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as warmer weather arrives.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave extra debris and gunk by 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 hamper air-flow for your air conditioner
, making your system to work harder than it needs to.
Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.
