How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Cooling

Your air conditioner has worked hard this summer and we still have some more heat coming. Just because the date on the calendar has moved over to fall doesn’t mean you’re through with your AC for the season. Staying up with annual AC maintenance, while also following a couple other tricks, can help you maintain your air conditioner while staying comfortable too.

Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit

Debris can accumulate around your outside unit, especially during the fall. When it comes time to rake up the leaves in your yard, at least rake up the leaves and debris around your air conditioner. Debris can impact air flow, causing your system to work harder and wear down quicker. We want your air conditioner to last as long as possible.

Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat

Have your thermostat set at the highest temperature you can while still staying cozy. Whenever possible, use other 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 creates more work for it to make up when you switch 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 critical. Our technicians will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and ensure the electric is working as it should, the coils and filters are clean and so much more. We take a close look to catch smaller problems before they become huge breakdowns and turn in to an AC repair appointment. Keeping cool and cozy in your own home isn’t something you should have to worry about, and with our annual AC maintenance you don’t have to worry.
