Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t indicate that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system still. This is 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 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, as well as these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Turn up your thermostat temperature.
Turning up your thermostat
temperature during these times 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 will just make it harder 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 temperatures rise.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave excess 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 time 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.
