Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t signify that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. These are the days when everyone switches 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 love 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, along with these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Raise your thermostat temperature.
Raising 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 actually makes it tougher to turn your system back on when you need it again later in fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable temperature is a simple way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave excess debris and gunk by your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or high amounts of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the chance to clean up your post-winter yard, at least confirm 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.
