How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t mean that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. We’re in 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 work during 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 large difference in the comfort of your home. That, as well as these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:

Boost your thermostat temperature.

Turning up your thermostat temperature during these times 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 harder to turn your system back on when you need it again in the fall. Setting your thermostat to a modest temperature is a simple way to maintain a balance in your home as warmer weather arrives.

Clean around your outdoor unit.

The winter can leave additional debris and gunk by 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 confirm that the area around your system is clear. Debris can obstruct air-flow for your air conditioner, causing your system to work harder than it should.

Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.

Annual service on your air conditioner is very important for the longevity of your system. Check in with our professionals at Jack's Refrigeration Heating and Cooling and they will thoroughly inspect your system to make sure everything is working properly; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter whole. Our technicians will look for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a greater problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
