How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, 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 switches 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 schedule with your air conditioner maintenance can make a world of a difference in the comfort of your home. That, plus these other tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:

Raise your thermostat temperature.

Turning up your thermostat temperature during these days 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 will just make it harder to turn your system back on when you need it again later in fall. Setting your thermostat to an acceptable temperature is a good way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.

Clean around your outdoor unit.

The winter can leave excess debris and gunk around your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or high amounts of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the chance to clean up your post-winter yard, at least confirm 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 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 D & D Heating & AC and they will properly inspect your system to ensure everything is working properly; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter undamaged.
