How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Cooling

Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t indicate that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. We’re in 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 maintenance before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on task with your air conditioner maintenance can make a big difference in the comfort of your home. That, along with these other tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:

Raise your thermostat temperature.

Raising your thermostat temperature during this season of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable in your home. Turning off your air conditioner completely will not save you energy in the long run, but instead it just 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 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 lots 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 hamper air-flow for your air conditioner, forcing your system to work harder than it should.

Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.

Annual service on your air conditioner is key for the longevity of your system. Check in with our professionals at All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc and they will come 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 whole. Our technicians will check for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a big problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
