How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Cooling

Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t signify that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. These are the days when everyone is in between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of exertion during the summer, it still needs a little love before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping up 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 gets chilly:

Boost your thermostat temperature.

Boosting your thermostat temperature during these times of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable indoors. Turning off your air conditioner completely won’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 warmer weather arrives.

Clean around your outdoor unit.

The winter can leave additional 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 the chance 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, making your system to work harder than it should.

Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance.

Annual service on your air conditioner is very important for the longevity of your system. Check in with our professionals at E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service and they will properly inspect your system to ensure everything is working as it should; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter undamaged.
