Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t indicate that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. This is the time of year when everyone switches between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of work through 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 big difference in the comfort of your home. That, as well as these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Raising your thermostat
temperature during these times of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable indoors. Turning off your air conditioner completely doesn’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it will just make it tougher to turn your system back on when you need it again later in fall. Setting your thermostat to an acceptable temperature is an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave extra 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 ensure 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.
Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is critical for the longevity of your system. Call our professionals at J & J Air Conditioning 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 whole. Our technicians will watch for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a big problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
