Your air conditioner has put in a lot of work this summer and we still have some more heat coming. Just because the date on the calendar has switched over to fall doesn’t mean you’re done with your AC for the season. Keeping up with annual AC maintenance, while also following a few other pointers, can help you maintain your air conditioner while staying cozy too.
Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit
Debris can accumulate around your outside unit, especially during the fall. When the time comes to rake up the leaves in your yard, at least rake up the leaves and debris around your air conditioner. Debris can impact air flow, causing your system to work harder and wear down quicker. We want your air conditioner to last as long as it was designed to.
Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat
Have your thermostat set at the highest temperature you can while still remaining comfy. Whenever possible, utilize supplemental cooling methods such as fans. The lower you set your thermostat
, the harder your system will have to work to reach that temperature. You may think turning your unit off completely will save on energy and help your system, but that just creates more ground for it to make up when you flip it back on. It will have to work harder for a longer amount of time, which is another thing that could lead to premature system failure.
Keep Up With AC Maintenance
Keeping a well-maintained system with regular, annual AC maintenance
is so essential. Our professionals will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and be sure the electric is working correctly, the coils and filters are clean and so much more. We take a deeper look to catch small problems before they become major breakdowns and turn in to an AC repair
appointment. Keeping cool and comfortable in your own home isn’t something you should have to be concerned about, and with our annual AC maintenance you don’t have to worry. Give us a call at 951-299-9853 to set both your mind and system at ease. We look forward to working with you.
