Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t indicate that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. 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 exertion through the summer, it still needs a little maintenance 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, plus these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Turning up your thermostat
temperature during these days 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 actually makes it harder to turn your system back on when you need it again next fall. Setting your thermostat to a modest temperature is a good way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave excess 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 an opportunity 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
, making your system to work harder than it needs to.
