Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t indicate that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system still. 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 work through the summer, it still needs a little maintenance before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping up with your air conditioner maintenance can make a large difference in the comfort of your home. That, plus these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Raise your thermostat temperature.
Turning up your thermostat
temperature during these times of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely won’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it actually makes it more difficult to turn your system back on when you need it again later in fall. Setting your thermostat to a modest 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 additional debris and gunk close to your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or high amounts of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the time to clean up your post-winter yard, at least ensure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can obstruct air-flow for your air conditioner
, causing your system to work harder than it should.
Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is very important for the longevity of your system. Call our professionals at E.B.
