Your air conditioner has put in a lot of work this summer and we still have some more heat coming. Just because the date on the calendar has switched over to fall doesn’t mean you’re done with your AC for the season. Staying on top of annual AC maintenance, while also following a few other tips, can help you maintain your air conditioner while keeping your home cozy too.
Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit
Debris can pile up around your outside unit, particularly during the fall. When the time comes to rake up the leaves in your yard, make 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 it can.
Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat
Keep your thermostat set at the highest temperature you can while still remaining cozy. Whenever possible, take advantage of other 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 switching off your system completely will save on energy and help your system, but that makes more work for it to make up when you turn it back on. It will have to work harder for a longer amount of time, which is another contributing factor that could lead to early system failure.
