How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t mean that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system still. We’re in 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 throughout the summer, it still needs a little love before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on task with your air conditioner maintenance can make a large difference in the comfort of your home. That, along with these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets cooler:

Turn up your thermostat temperature.

Raising your thermostat temperature during these times of 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 in the fall. Setting your thermostat to an acceptable temperature is a simple way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.

Clean around your outdoor unit.

The winter can leave excess debris and gunk by your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or high amounts 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 hinder air-flow for your air conditioner, making your system to work harder than it expects.

Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.

Annual service on your air conditioner is critical for the longevity of your system. Check in with our professionals at Cool Air Solutions and they will thoroughly inspect your system to ensure everything is working properly; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter intact. Our technicians will look for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a big problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
