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 switched 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 tricks, can help you maintain your air conditioner while staying comfortable 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 sooner. We want your air conditioner to last as long as it can.
Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat
Keep your thermostat set at the highest temperature you can while still being cozy. Whenever possible, utilize 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 shutting off your unit completely will save on energy and help your system, but that just creates more ground 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 contributing factor that could lead to early system failure.
Keep Up With AC Maintenance
Keeping a well-maintained system with routine, annual AC maintenance
is so critical. Our professionals will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and make sure the electric is working as it should, the coils and filters are clean and so much more. We take a deeper look to catch small 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 631-737-5566 to set both your mind and system at ease. We look forward to working with you.
