Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t indicate that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. This is 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 exertion during the summer, it still needs a little attention before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping up with your air conditioner maintenance can make a large difference in the comfort of your home. That, plus these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Boosting your thermostat
temperature during these times 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 tougher to turn your system back on when you need it again in the fall. Setting your thermostat to an acceptable temperature is an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave additional debris and gunk by your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or a lot 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.
Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.
