How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall08/24/2016 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. These are the days when everyone switches 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, along with these other tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off: Raise 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 won’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it just makes it more difficult to turn your system back on when you need it again in the fall. Setting your thermostat to an acceptable temperature is a simple way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes. Clean around your outdoor unit. The winter can leave extra 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 ensure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can obstruct air-flow for your air conditioner, making 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. Contact our professionals at Cooler Tymes LLC 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 intact.
