How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t indicate 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 work during 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 world of a difference in the comfort of your home. That, along with these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:

Turn up your thermostat temperature.

Boosting your thermostat temperature during these days moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable indoors. 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 next fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable temperature is an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise.

Clean around your outdoor unit.

The winter can leave excess debris and gunk around your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or a lot of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had an opportunity 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, causing your system to work harder than it expects.

Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance.
