Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t signify that you are surely done using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. These are the days when everyone switches between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of exertion during the summer, it still needs a little love before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on schedule with your air conditioner maintenance can make a world of a difference in the comfort of your home. That, along with these other tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Turning up your thermostat
temperature during this season of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely will not save you energy in the long run, but instead it just makes it tougher to turn your system back on when you need it again next fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable temperature is a simple way to maintain a balance in your home as warmer weather arrives.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave additional debris and gunk close to your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or lots 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
, causing your system to work harder than it should.
Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.
Annual service on your air conditioner is critical for the longevity of your system. Check in with our professionals at Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating 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 undamaged. Our technicians will look for small problems too, making sure that nothing turns into a greater problem toward the end of your air conditioner usage for the season.
