Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t indicate that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system still. 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 work throughout 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 big difference in the comfort of your home. That, plus these other suggestions, 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 in your home. Turning off your air conditioner completely doesn’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 in the fall. Setting your thermostat to a modest temperature is an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave extra debris and gunk close to your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or lots of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the chance 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
, making your system to work harder than it expects.
