How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t mean that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system still. This is 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 effort throughout the summer, it still needs a little attention before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on schedule with your air conditioner maintenance can make a world of a difference in the comfort of your home. That, plus these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets cooler:

Raise your thermostat temperature.

Turning up your thermostat temperature during these days moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely will not 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 warmer weather arrives.

Clean around your outdoor unit.

The winter can leave excess debris and gunk by your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or a lot of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the time to clean up your post-winter yard, at least ensure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can hamper air-flow for your air conditioner, making your system to work harder than it needs to.

Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance.
