Your air conditioner has had a lot of work to do this summer and we still have more heat on its way. Just because the date on the calendar has moved 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 tricks, can help you maintain your air conditioner while keeping your home comfy too.
Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit
Debris can build up around your outside unit, especially during the fall. When the time arrives to rake up the leaves in your yard, at least 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 was designed to.
Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat
Keep your thermostat set at the highest temperature you can while still staying comfy. 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 turning your unit off 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 thing that could lead to early system failure.
Keep Up With AC Maintenance
Keeping a well-maintained system with routine, annual AC maintenance
is so essential. Our experts will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and be sure the electric is working correctly, the coils and filters are clean and so much more. We take an in-depth look to catch small problems before they become big breakdowns and turn in to an AC repair
