How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Cooling

Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t mean that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. This is the time of year when everyone is in 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 up with your air conditioner maintenance can make a big difference in the comfort of your home. That, along with these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets cooler:

Boost 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 actually makes it tougher 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 excess debris and gunk close to 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 hinder air-flow for your air conditioner, causing your system to work harder than it should.

Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.

Annual service on your air conditioner is key for the longevity of your system. Contact our professionals at Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. and they will properly inspect your system to make sure everything is working as it should; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter intact. Our technicians will check for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a big problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
