Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t mean that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. 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 work throughout the summer, it still needs a little attention 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, along with these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Boosting your thermostat
temperature during these times of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable indoors. Turning off your air conditioner completely doesn’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it will just make it more difficult to turn your system back on when you need it again next fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable 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 extra 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 an opportunity to clean up your post-winter yard, at least make sure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can hinder air-flow for your air conditioner
, forcing your system to work harder than it expects.
Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.
