How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Cooling

Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t signify that you will be done 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 exertion throughout the summer, it still needs a little attention before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on schedule with your air conditioner maintenance can make a world of a difference in the comfort of your home. That, along with these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:

Turn up your thermostat temperature.

Raising your thermostat temperature during these days moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely doesn’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it will just make it tougher to turn your system back on when you need it again in the fall. Setting your thermostat to an acceptable temperature is a good way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.

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 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, making your system to work harder than it should.

Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance.
