Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t indicate that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. 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 through the summer, it still needs a little maintenance before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on task with your air conditioner maintenance can make a large difference in the comfort of your home. That, along with these other tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Turn up your thermostat temperature.
Turning up your thermostat
temperature during these days moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely will not save you energy in the long run, but instead it just makes it tougher to turn your system back on when you need it again in the fall. Setting your thermostat to a modest temperature is an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave extra debris and gunk around your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or high amounts of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had an opportunity to clean up your post-winter yard, at least make sure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can obstruct air-flow for your air conditioner
, making your system to work harder than it expects.
