Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t indicate that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. We’re in 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 through the summer, it still needs a little maintenance 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, plus these other tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Turn up your thermostat temperature.
Boosting your thermostat
temperature during these times of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable indoors. Turning off your air conditioner completely won’t 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 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 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 an opportunity to clean up your post-winter yard, at least ensure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can obstruct air-flow for your air conditioner
, making your system to work harder than it expects.
Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is critical for the longevity of your system. Contact our professionals at County Line Mechanical LLC and they will come inspect your system to assure that everything is working as it should; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter undamaged. Our technicians will watch for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a big problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
