Your air conditioner has had a lot of work to do this summer and we still have some more heat coming. Just because the date on the calendar has moved over to fall doesn’t mean you’re finished with your AC for the season. Staying on top of annual AC maintenance, while also following a handful of other pointers, can help you maintain your air conditioner while staying comfortable too.
Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit
Debris can build up around your outside unit, specifically 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 hinder air flow, causing your system to work harder and wear down quicker. We want your air conditioner to last as long as possible.
Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat
Have your thermostat set at the highest temperature you can while still staying comfy. Whenever possible, utilize supplemental cooling methods such as fans. The lower you set your thermostat
, the harder your system will have to work to attain that temperature. You may think shutting off your unit completely will save on energy and help your system, but that creates more work for it to make up when you switch it back on. It will have to work harder for a longer amount of time, which is something else that could lead to premature system failure.
Keep Up With AC Maintenance
Keeping a well-maintained system with normal, annual AC maintenance
is so important. Our experts will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and make sure the electric is working properly, the coils and filters are clean and so much more. We take an in-depth look to catch small problems before they become major breakdowns and turn in to an AC repair
