How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Cooling

Your air conditioner has had a lot of work to do this summer and we still have some more heat coming. Just because the date on the calendar has switched over to fall doesn’t mean you’re finished with your AC for the season. Staying up with annual AC maintenance, while also following a handful of other tricks, can help you maintain your air conditioner while keeping your home comfy too.

Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit

Debris can build up around your outside unit, especially during the fall. When it comes time to rake up the leaves in your yard, be sure to rake up the leaves and debris around your air conditioner. Debris can inhibit air flow, causing your system to work harder and wear down faster. We want your air conditioner to last as long as possible.

Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat

Set your thermostat at the highest temperature you can while still staying comfy. Whenever possible, take advantage of additional cooling methods such as fans. The lower you set your thermostat, the harder your system will have to work to reach 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 untimely system failure.

Keep Up With AC Maintenance

Keeping a well-maintained system with routine, annual AC maintenance is so important. Our professionals will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and make sure the electric is working correctly, the coils and filters are clean and so much more. We take a close look to catch small problems before they become big breakdowns and turn in to an AC repair appointment. Keeping cool and comfortable in your own home isn’t something you should have to be worried about, and with our annual AC maintenance you don’t have to worry.
