Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, 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 is in 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, plus these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Raise your thermostat temperature.
Turning up your thermostat
temperature during this season of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely doesn’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it just makes it tougher to turn your system back on when you need it again next fall. Setting your thermostat to a modest 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 close to 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 ensure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can obstruct air-flow for your air conditioner
, making your system to work harder than it should.
Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is very important for the longevity of your system. Check in with our professionals at Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning and they will thoroughly inspect your system to assure that everything is working as it should; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter intact.
