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 surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system still. This is the time of year when everyone is in 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 schedule with your air conditioner maintenance can make a world of a 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 doesn’t 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 modest temperature is an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as warmer weather arrives.

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 time to clean up your post-winter yard, at least confirm 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.

Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance.

Annual service on your air conditioner is key for the longevity of your system. Check in with our professionals at House of Heating Incorporated and they will come inspect your system to make sure everything is working properly; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter whole. Our technicians will watch for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a large problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
