Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t signify that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system still. This is 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 work during the summer, it still needs a little love 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, plus these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets cooler:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Raising your thermostat
temperature during this season of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable indoors. Turning off your air conditioner completely doesn’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it will just make it more difficult to turn your system back on when you need it again in the fall. Setting your thermostat to an acceptable 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 by your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or high amounts of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the chance to clean up your post-winter yard, at least ensure 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. Contact our professionals at Clean Air HVAC and they will properly inspect your system to assure that everything is working as it should; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter intact. Our technicians will check for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a greater problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
