How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall08/24/2016 Just because the calendar tells us it’s fall, doesn’t mean that you are finished using your air conditioner or cooling system in the near future. These are the days when everyone is in between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of work throughout the summer, it still needs a little attention before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on schedule with your air conditioner maintenance can make a world of a difference in the comfort of your home. That, along with these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets chilly: Boost your thermostat temperature. Turning up 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 will just make it harder to turn your system back on when you need it again next fall. Setting your thermostat to an acceptable temperature is a good way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise. Clean around your outdoor unit. The winter can leave excess debris and gunk around your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or lots of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had an opportunity to clean up your post-winter yard, at least ensure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can hinder air-flow for your air conditioner, making your system to work harder than it expects. 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 Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & Heating and they will properly inspect your system to ensure everything is working properly; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter undamaged.
