Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t signify that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. This is 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 through the summer, it still needs a little maintenance before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping up 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:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Boosting your thermostat
temperature during these times of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable indoors. 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 later in fall. Setting your thermostat to a modest temperature is a good way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave extra debris and gunk by your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or lots of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the time to clean up your post-winter yard, at least ensure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can obstruct air-flow for your air conditioner
, forcing your system to work harder than it needs to.
Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is key for the longevity of your system. Call our professionals at Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC and they will thoroughly inspect your system to assure that everything is working efficiently; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter intact.
