How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Cooling

Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t indicate that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. This is the time of year when everyone is in between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of effort 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 big difference in the comfort of your home. That, as well as these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:

Turn up your thermostat temperature.

Turning up your thermostat temperature during these times of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely will not save you energy in the long run, but instead it actually makes it tougher to turn your system back on when you need it again next 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 around your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or lots of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had an opportunity to clean up your post-winter yard, at least confirm 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 should.

Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance.

Annual service on your air conditioner is very important for the longevity of your system. Contact our professionals at Cytech Heating & Cooling and they will come 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. Our technicians will look for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a large problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
