Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t signify that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. This is the time of year when everyone switches 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 love 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, along with these other tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:
Turn up your thermostat temperature.
Turning up your thermostat
temperature during this season of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable indoors. Turning off your air conditioner completely will not save you energy in the long run, but instead it just makes it harder to turn your system back on when you need it again later in fall. Setting your thermostat to a modest temperature is a simple way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise.
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 make sure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can obstruct air-flow for your air conditioner
, forcing your system to work harder than it expects.
Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is key for the longevity of your system. Check in with our professionals at Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning and they will thoroughly 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 large problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
