How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Cooling

Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t indicate that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. 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 exertion 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 large difference in the comfort of your home. That, as well as these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:

Turn up 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 won’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it will just make it tougher to turn your system back on when you need it again later in fall. Setting your thermostat to an acceptable temperature is an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise.

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 a lot of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the chance to clean up your post-winter yard, at least make sure 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 needs to.

Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance.

Annual service on your air conditioner is very important for the longevity of your system. Call our professionals at ACS Inc and they will properly inspect your system to make sure everything is working properly; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter intact.
