How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall08/24/2016 Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t signify that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. These are the days when everyone is in between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of exertion during the summer, it still needs a little maintenance 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, along with these other tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly: Boost your thermostat temperature. Turning up your thermostat temperature during this season of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable indoors. 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 an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes. Clean around your outdoor unit. The winter can leave extra debris and gunk around your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or a lot of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the time 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 should. Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance. Annual service on your air conditioner is critical for the longevity of your system.
