How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t mean that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. This is 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 effort 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 large difference in the comfort of your home. That, plus these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets cooler:

Boost your thermostat temperature.

Raising 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 actually makes it harder 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 temperatures rise.

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 ensure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can obstruct air-flow for your air conditioner, making your system to work harder than it expects.

Stay on track with air conditioner maintenance.

Annual service on your air conditioner is very important for the longevity of your system. Call our professionals at McNatt Inc and they will come 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. Our technicians will check for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a large problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
