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 switched over to fall doesn’t mean you’re through with your AC for the season. Keeping up with annual AC maintenance, while also following a few other pointers, can help you maintain your air conditioner while remaining cozy too.
Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit
Debris can accumulate around your outside unit, specifically during the fall. When it comes time to rake up the leaves in your yard, make 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 sooner. We want your air conditioner to last as long as it can.
Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat
Set your thermostat at the highest temperature you can while still staying comfortable. Whenever possible, take advantage of 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 switching off your system completely will save on energy and help your system, but that just creates more ground 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 routine, annual AC maintenance
is so important. Our technicians 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 a deeper look to catch little problems before they become major 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 worried about, and with our annual AC maintenance you don’t have to worry. Give us a call at 772-600-7151 to set both your mind and system at ease. We look forward to working with you.
