Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t signify that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. 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 attention 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, along with these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets cooler:
Raise your thermostat temperature.
Raising 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 harder to turn your system back on when you need it again next fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable 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 high amounts of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had an opportunity to clean up your post-winter yard, at least ensure 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 should.
