How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Cooling

Your air conditioner has put in a lot of work this summer and we still have more heat on its way. 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 on top of annual AC maintenance, while also following a handful of other pointers, can help you maintain your air conditioner while remaining cozy 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, be sure to rake up the leaves and debris around your air conditioner. Debris can impact air flow, causing your system to work harder and wear down faster. We want your air conditioner to last as long as it can.

Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat

Have your thermostat set at the highest temperature you can while still remaining comfy. Whenever possible, utilize other cooling methods such as fans. The lower you set your thermostat, the harder your system will have to work to attain 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 flip it back on. It will have to work harder for a longer amount of time, which is something else that could lead to early system failure.

Keep Up With AC Maintenance

Keeping a well-maintained system with routine, annual AC maintenance is so critical. 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 an in-depth look to catch little problems before they become huge breakdowns and turn in to an AC repair appointment.
