Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t indicate that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system still. We’re in the time of year when everyone goes back and forth 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 task with your air conditioner maintenance can make a world of a difference in the comfort of your home. That, along with these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Boosting your thermostat
temperature during this season of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely won’t 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 good way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave additional debris and gunk by your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or lots 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
, forcing your system to work harder than it should.
Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is key for the longevity of your system. Call our professionals at Anderson Heating & A/C and they will come inspect your system to assure that everything is working efficiently; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter undamaged. Our technicians will look for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a large problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
