Your air conditioner has put in a lot of work this summer and we still have more hot weather to go. Just because the date on the calendar has changed over to fall doesn’t mean you’re through with your AC for the season. Keeping up with annual AC maintenance, while also following a couple other pointers, can help you maintain your air conditioner while remaining comfy too.
Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit
Debris can accumulate around your outside unit, particularly during the fall. When the time arrives to rake up the leaves in your yard, at least rake up the leaves and debris around your air conditioner. Debris can impact air flow, causing your system to work harder and wear down sooner. We want your air conditioner to last as long as possible.
Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat
Keep your thermostat set at the highest temperature you can while still remaining comfortable. Whenever possible, use supplemental cooling methods such as fans. The lower you set your thermostat
, the harder your system will have to work to get to that temperature. You may think turning your unit off completely will save on energy and help your system, but that creates more work for it to make up when you flip it back on. It will have to work harder for a longer amount of time, which is another contributing factor that could lead to untimely system failure.
Keep Up With AC Maintenance
Keeping a well-maintained system with routine, annual AC maintenance
is so critical. Our technicians will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and ensure the electric is working properly, the coils and filters are clean and so much more. We take an in-depth look to catch smaller problems before they become huge breakdowns and turn in to an AC repair
appointment. Keeping cool and comfy in your own home isn’t something you should have to be concerned about, and with our annual AC maintenance you don’t have to worry. Give us a call at 256-801-4701 to set both your mind and system at ease. We look forward to working with you.
