How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

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. Keeping up with annual AC maintenance, while also following a few other pointers, can help you maintain your air conditioner while remaining cozy too.

Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit

Debris can build up around your outside unit, particularly 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 inhibit air flow, causing your system to work harder and wear down faster. We want your air conditioner to last as long as possible.

Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat

Keep your thermostat set at the highest temperature you can while still being comfortable. Whenever possible, use additional cooling methods such as fans. The lower you set your thermostat, the harder your system will have to work to get to that temperature. You may think shutting off your unit 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 regular, annual AC maintenance is so critical. Our professionals will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and be sure the electric is working properly, the coils and filters are clean and so much more. We take a close look to catch small problems before they become big breakdowns and turn in to an AC repair appointment. Keeping cool and comfy in your own home isn’t something you should have to worry about, and with our annual AC maintenance you don’t have to worry.
