Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t mean that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system still. 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 exertion 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 big difference in the comfort of your home. That, as well as these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:
Raise your thermostat temperature.
Raising 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 harder to turn your system back on when you need it again later in fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable 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 close to your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or a lot of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the chance to clean up your post-winter yard, at least confirm 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 should.
Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is critical for the longevity of your system. Call 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 look for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a large problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
