Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t mean that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. This is 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 effort through the summer, it still needs a little love before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping up with your air conditioner maintenance can make a big difference in the comfort of your home. That, as well as 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 won’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it will just make it more difficult 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 excess debris and gunk close to 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
, making your system to work harder than it should.
Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.
