Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t indicate that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. We’re in the time of year when everyone goes back and forth 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 attention 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 tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets cooler:
Turn up your thermostat temperature.
Boosting your thermostat
temperature during these times of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable in your home. 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 later in fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable temperature is an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave additional 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 the chance to clean up your post-winter yard, at least confirm that the area around your system is clear. Debris can hinder air-flow for your air conditioner
, causing your system to work harder than it needs to.
Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is key for the longevity of your system. Contact our professionals at Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning and they will properly 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.
