How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t indicate that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. 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 exertion throughout the summer, it still needs a little maintenance 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 cooler:

Raise your thermostat temperature.

Turning up your thermostat temperature during this season of 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 just makes it tougher to turn your system back on when you need it again later in fall. Setting your thermostat to an acceptable temperature is a simple way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise.

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 the chance to clean up your post-winter yard, at least make sure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can hinder air-flow for your air conditioner, forcing your system to work harder than it needs to.

Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.

Annual service on your air conditioner is critical for the longevity of your system. Check in with our professionals at Air Alliance Team and they will thoroughly inspect your system to assure that everything is working efficiently; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter whole. Our technicians will watch for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a large problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
