How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall08/24/2016 Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t signify that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system still. These are the days when everyone is in between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of work throughout the summer, it still needs a little love before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping up with your air conditioner maintenance can make a big difference in the comfort of your home. That, as well as these other tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off: Boost your thermostat temperature. Raising your thermostat temperature during this season of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely doesn’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it just makes it more difficult to turn your system back on when you need it again next fall. Setting your thermostat to an acceptable temperature is a simple way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise. Clean around your outdoor unit. The winter can leave additional debris and gunk by your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or a lot of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the time to clean up your post-winter yard, at least ensure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can hamper air-flow for your air conditioner, causing your system to work harder than it should. Keep up with air conditioner maintenance. Annual service on your air conditioner is key for the longevity of your system. Call our professionals at Gordon Air Conditioning and they will come inspect your system to assure that everything is working properly; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter intact. Our technicians will check for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a greater problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
