Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t mean that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. 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 through 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 large difference in the comfort of your home. That, plus these other tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Boosting your thermostat
temperature during these days moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely doesn’t 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 simple way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.
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 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
, causing your system to work harder than it expects.
Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance.
