Your air conditioner has put in a lot of work this summer and we still have more hot weather to go. 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 remaining cozy too.
Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit
Debris can accumulate around your outside unit, particularly 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 inhibit air flow, causing your system to work harder and wear down faster. We want your air conditioner to last as long as it was designed to.
Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat
Set your thermostat at the highest temperature you can while still being comfy. Whenever possible, take advantage of supplemental 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 shutting off your unit completely will save on energy and help your system, but that makes 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 premature system failure.
Keep Up With AC Maintenance
Keeping a well-maintained system with routine, annual AC maintenance
is so essential. Our experts will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and make sure the electric is working properly, 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
