Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t mean that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system still. These are the days when everyone goes back and forth between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of effort through the summer, it still needs a little love before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on schedule with your air conditioner maintenance can make a world of a difference in the comfort of your home. That, plus these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Raising your thermostat
temperature during these times of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely will not save you energy in the long run, but instead it just makes it harder to turn your system back on when you need it again later in fall. Setting your thermostat to a modest temperature is a good way to maintain a balance in your home as warmer weather arrives.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave extra 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 ensure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can obstruct air-flow for your air conditioner
, making your system to work harder than it needs to.
Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is critical for the longevity of your system. Contact our professionals at Stieferman Heating Company Inc and they will properly inspect your system to ensure everything is working efficiently; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter whole.
