Your air conditioner has worked hard this summer and we still have some more heat coming. Just because the date on the calendar has switched over to fall doesn’t mean you’re through with your AC for the season. Staying on top of annual AC maintenance, while also following a few other pointers, can help you maintain your air conditioner while keeping your home comfy too.
Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit
Debris can pile up around your outside unit, especially during the fall. When the time comes to rake up the leaves in your yard, make sure to rake up the leaves and debris around your air conditioner. Debris can impact air flow, causing your system to work harder and wear down faster. 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, take advantage of additional 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 makes 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 another contributing factor 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 professionals 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 a deeper look to catch little problems before they become big breakdowns and turn in to an AC repair
appointment. Keeping cool and cozy 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 407-477-6319 to set both your mind and system at ease. We look forward to working with you.
