How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

August 24, 2016

Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t indicate that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. We’re in the time of year when everyone switches between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of exertion through the summer, it still needs a little attention before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on task 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 gets chilly:

Turn up your thermostat temperature.

Boosting your thermostat temperature during this season of moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable indoors. Turning off your air conditioner completely doesn’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it just makes it harder to turn your system back on when you need it again next fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable temperature is an easy way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.

Clean around your outdoor unit.

The winter can leave extra debris and gunk by your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or high amounts of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the chance to clean up your post-winter yard, at least confirm that the area around your system is clear. Debris can hamper air-flow for your air conditioner, making your system to work harder than it needs to.

Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance.

Annual service on your air conditioner is very important for the longevity of your system. Call our professionals at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. and they will thoroughly 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 intact.
