Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t indicate that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. We’re in 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, as well as these other tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Raising your thermostat
temperature during this season of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable indoors. Turning off your air conditioner completely will not 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 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 high amounts of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the chance 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 needs to.
Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is very important for the longevity of your system. Check in with our professionals at Mayeuxs AC & Heating and they will come inspect your system to assure that everything is working efficiently; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter undamaged.
