Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t mean that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system still. We’re in the time of year when everyone switches between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of work during 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 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.
Boosting your thermostat
temperature during these days moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable in your home. Turning off your air conditioner completely won’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 an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave extra 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 time to clean up your post-winter yard, at least confirm 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 needs to.
Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance.
