Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t indicate that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. 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 work through the summer, it still needs a little love before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping up with your air conditioner maintenance can make a world of a difference in the comfort of your home. That, as well as these other tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets cooler:
Raise your thermostat temperature.
Raising your thermostat
temperature during this season 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 will just make 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 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 hamper air-flow for your air conditioner
, causing your system to work harder than it needs to.
Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is critical for the longevity of your system. Call our professionals at B&D Air Conditioning 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.
