How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall08/24/2016 Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t indicate that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. 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 exertion throughout the summer, it still needs a little love before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on task with your air conditioner maintenance can make a big difference in the comfort of your home. That, along with these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets cooler: Raise your thermostat temperature. Boosting your thermostat temperature during this season 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 will just make it tougher to turn your system back on when you need it again in the fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable temperature is a good way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes. Clean around your outdoor unit. The winter can leave extra debris and gunk around your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or a lot of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the chance to clean up your post-winter yard, at least make sure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can hamper air-flow for your air conditioner, causing your system to work harder than it needs to. Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance. Annual service on your air conditioner is key for the longevity of your system. Check in with our professionals at Arrings A/C & Heating and they will properly inspect your system to assure that everything is working as it should; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter whole.
