Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t mean that you are surely 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 effort during the summer, it still needs a little attention before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on schedule with your air conditioner maintenance can make a big difference in the comfort of your home. That, as well as these other tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets cooler:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Raising your thermostat
temperature during these days moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable in your home. Turning off your air conditioner completely won’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it will just make it harder to turn your system back on when you need it again in the fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable temperature is a good 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 lots 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
, forcing your system to work harder than it expects.
Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is key for the longevity of your system. Check in with our professionals at Age Heating & Cooling 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 whole.
