How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall08/24/2016 Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t mean that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. This is 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 during the summer, it still needs a little attention 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 recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets cooler: Boost 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 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 warmer weather arrives. Clean around your outdoor unit. The winter can leave extra debris and gunk around your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or high amounts of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the time 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, causing your system to work harder than it should. Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance. Annual service on your air conditioner is critical for the longevity of your system.
