How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Cooling

Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t signify that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. This is the time of year 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 cools off:

Boost your thermostat temperature.

Boosting your thermostat temperature during these days moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely doesn’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it just makes it more difficult to turn your system back on when you need it again next fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable temperature is a simple way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.

Clean around your outdoor unit.

The winter can leave additional debris and gunk by 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, causing your system to work harder than it needs to.

Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.
