Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t indicate that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system still. 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 effort throughout the summer, it still needs a little love before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on task with your air conditioner maintenance can make a big difference in the comfort of your home. That, as well as these other tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Raise your thermostat temperature.
Raising your thermostat
temperature during this season of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable in your home. Turning off your air conditioner completely doesn’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it just makes it tougher 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 excess debris and gunk close to 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
, forcing your system to work harder than it should.
Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is key for the longevity of your system. Contact our professionals at ACE Solutions and they will properly inspect your system to ensure everything is working as it should; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter undamaged. Our technicians will look for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a greater problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
