How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Your air conditioner has worked hard this summer and we still have some more heat coming. Just because the date on the calendar has changed over to fall doesn’t mean you’re finished with your AC for the season. Staying up with annual AC maintenance, while also following a couple other pointers, can help you maintain your air conditioner while staying cozy too.

Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit

Debris can accumulate around your outside unit, especially during the fall. When the time arrives to rake up the leaves in your yard, be sure to rake up the leaves and debris around your air conditioner. Debris can inhibit air flow, causing your system to work harder and wear down quicker. We want your air conditioner to last as long as it was designed to.

Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat

Set your thermostat at the highest temperature you can while still being cozy. Whenever possible, take advantage of other cooling methods such as fans. The lower you set your thermostat, the harder your system will have to work to reach that temperature. You may think shutting off your unit completely will save on energy and help your system, but that just creates more ground for it to make up when you switch it back on. It will have to work harder for a longer amount of time, which is something else that could lead to untimely system failure.

Keep Up With AC Maintenance

Keeping a well-maintained system with normal, annual AC maintenance is so critical. Our technicians will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and make sure the electric is working correctly, the coils and filters are clean and so much more. We take a deeper look to catch smaller problems before they become huge breakdowns and turn in to an AC repair appointment. Keeping cool and comfy in your own home isn’t something you should have to be worried about, and with our annual AC maintenance you don’t have to worry.
