How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall08/24/2016 Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t mean that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. These are the days when everyone is in between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of effort during the summer, it still needs a little maintenance 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, as well as these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly: Turn up your thermostat temperature. Raising your thermostat temperature during this season of 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 just makes it more difficult to turn your system back on when you need it again in the fall. Setting your thermostat to a modest temperature is an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as warmer weather arrives. Clean around your outdoor unit. The winter can leave additional debris and gunk by your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or lots of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the time 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, making your system to work harder than it expects. Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance.
