Your air conditioner has worked hard this summer and we still have more hot weather to go. 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 tricks, 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 it comes time to rake up the leaves in your yard, at least rake up the leaves and debris around your air conditioner. Debris can impact air flow, causing your system to work harder and wear down quicker. We want your air conditioner to last as long as it was designed to.
Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat
Set your thermostat at the highest temperature you can while still remaining comfortable. Whenever possible, use supplemental 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 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 flip it back on. It will have to work harder for a longer amount of time, which is something else that could lead to early system failure.
Keep Up With AC Maintenance
Keeping a well-maintained system with normal, annual AC maintenance
is so essential. Our professionals will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and ensure the electric is working as it should, the coils and filters are clean and so much more. We take an in-depth look to catch smaller problems before they become major breakdowns and turn in to an AC repair
appointment. Keeping cool and comfortable in your own home isn’t something you should have to be concerned about, and with our annual AC maintenance you don’t have to worry. Give us a call at 863-216-2923 to set both your mind and system at ease. We look forward to working with you.
