Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t indicate that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system still. This is the time of year when everyone goes back and forth between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of work throughout 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, along with these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:
Turn up your thermostat temperature.
Raising your thermostat
temperature during these days 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 will just make it harder to turn your system back on when you need it again later in fall. Setting your thermostat to an acceptable temperature is a good way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave excess debris and gunk close to your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or lots of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the chance to clean up your post-winter yard, at least make sure 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 expects.
Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance.
