How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t signify that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. These are the days when everyone is in between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of work throughout 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 world of a difference in the comfort of your home. That, plus these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:

Raise your thermostat temperature.

Raising your thermostat temperature during these times of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely doesn’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it just makes it more difficult 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 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 the chance to clean up your post-winter yard, at least ensure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can hinder air-flow for your air conditioner, forcing your system to work harder than it expects.

Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance.

Annual service on your air conditioner is very important for the longevity of your system. Call our professionals at True Heating & Cooling and they will thoroughly inspect your system to make sure everything is working efficiently; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter intact. 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.
