Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t indicate that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. 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 exertion during the summer, it still needs a little maintenance 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, plus these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Raise your thermostat temperature.
Boosting 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 actually makes it more difficult to turn your system back on when you need it again next fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable temperature is a simple way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave extra debris and gunk around 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 confirm that the area around your system is clear. Debris can hamper air-flow for your air conditioner
, forcing your system to work harder than it needs to.
