How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t mean that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. These are the days when everyone switches between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of exertion throughout 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 tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:

Boost your thermostat temperature.

Boosting your thermostat temperature during this season of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely won’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it actually makes it more difficult 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 temperatures rise.

Clean around your outdoor unit.

The winter can leave additional debris and gunk close to 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 confirm that the area around your system is clear. Debris can hamper air-flow for your air conditioner, forcing 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. Check in with our professionals at Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning and they will thoroughly inspect your system to ensure everything is working as it should; 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 big problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
