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 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 love before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on task with your air conditioner maintenance can make a world of a difference in the comfort of your home. That, along with these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets cooler:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Boosting your thermostat
temperature during this season 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 reasonable temperature is a simple way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.
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 an opportunity 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 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 House of Heating Incorporated and they will thoroughly 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 check for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a greater problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
