How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t signify that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. These are the days when everyone goes back and forth 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 up 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 this season 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 just makes it more difficult to turn your system back on when you need it again in the fall. Setting your thermostat to a modest temperature is an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.

Clean around your outdoor unit.

The winter can leave extra debris and gunk by your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or a lot of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had an opportunity to clean up your post-winter yard, at least ensure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can hinder air-flow for your air conditioner, making your system to work harder than it expects.

Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.

Annual service on your air conditioner is key for the longevity of your system. Contact our professionals at The Frazier Company and they will properly inspect your system to make sure everything is working properly; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter undamaged. Our technicians will watch for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a large problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
