Your air conditioner has had a lot of work to do this summer and we still have more heat on its way. Just because the date on the calendar has moved over to fall doesn’t mean you’re finished with your AC for the season. Keeping up with annual AC maintenance, while also following a few other tricks, can help you maintain your air conditioner while staying comfortable too.
Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit
Debris can build up around your outside unit, particularly during the fall. When the time arrives to rake up the leaves in your yard, make sure to rake up the leaves and debris around your air conditioner. Debris can hinder air flow, causing your system to work harder and wear down faster. We want your air conditioner to last as long as it was designed to.
Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat
Keep your thermostat set at the highest temperature you can while still being comfortable. Whenever possible, take advantage of other cooling methods such as fans. The lower you set your thermostat
, the harder your system will have to work to attain that temperature. You may think turning your unit off completely will save on energy and help your system, but that just creates more ground for it to make up when you turn it back on. It will have to work harder for a longer amount of time, which is another thing that could lead to early system failure.
Keep Up With AC Maintenance
Keeping a well-maintained system with regular, annual AC maintenance
is so essential. Our professionals will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and ensure the electric is working properly, the coils and filters are clean and so much more. We take a close look to catch little problems before they become major breakdowns and turn in to an AC repair
