Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t indicate that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. We’re in the time of year when everyone goes back and forth between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of effort throughout 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, as well as these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets cooler:
Turn up your thermostat temperature.
Raising your thermostat
temperature during this season of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable in your home. Turning off your air conditioner completely doesn’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it will just make it harder to turn your system back on when you need it again in the fall. Setting your thermostat to a modest temperature is a good way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave additional debris and gunk close to your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or high amounts of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had an opportunity 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
, forcing your system to work harder than it needs to.
Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is critical for the longevity of your system. Contact our professionals at Premium Air Services LLC and they will properly inspect your system to make sure everything is working as it should; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter intact.
