How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall08/24/2016 Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t indicate that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. These are the days when everyone goes back and forth between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of exertion during the summer, it still needs a little attention 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 tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly: Raise 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 tougher to turn your system back on when you need it again later in fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable temperature is an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes. Clean around your outdoor unit. The winter can leave excess debris and gunk around your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or a lot of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the chance to clean up your post-winter yard, at least confirm that the area around your system is clear. Debris can obstruct air-flow for your air conditioner, causing your system to work harder than it should. Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance. Annual service on your air conditioner is very important for the longevity of your system.
