Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t indicate that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system still. 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 exertion during the summer, it still needs a little attention before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on task 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 gets cooler:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Boosting your thermostat
temperature during these times of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely will not 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 next fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable temperature is a simple way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave excess 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 ensure 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.
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 Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning and they will thoroughly inspect your system to make sure everything is working efficiently; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter undamaged.
