Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t mean that you are finished 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 work through the summer, it still needs a little love before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on task 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 cools off:
Turn up your thermostat temperature.
Boosting your thermostat
temperature during this season 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 will just make it more difficult to turn your system back on when you need it again next fall. Setting your thermostat to an acceptable temperature is a good way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.
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 a lot of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had an opportunity 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
, making your system to work harder than it needs to.
Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is key for the longevity of your system. Call our professionals at Brogan Heating & AC Inc and they will properly inspect your system to make sure everything is working efficiently; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter intact.
