Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t indicate that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system still. We’re in the time of year when everyone switches between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of work 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 world of a difference in the comfort of your home. That, along with these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Turn up your thermostat temperature.
Turning up your thermostat
temperature during these days moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable in your home. Turning off your air conditioner completely doesn’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it actually makes it tougher to turn your system back on when you need it again in the fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable temperature is an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave additional debris and gunk around 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 confirm 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 needs to.
