Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t signify that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system still. These are the days when everyone goes back and forth 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 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, as well as these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets cooler:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Raising your thermostat
temperature during these times of 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 just makes it harder to turn your system back on when you need it again next 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 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 hinder air-flow for your air conditioner
, making your system to work harder than it should.
Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance.
