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 changed over to fall doesn’t mean you’re finished with your AC for the season. Keeping up with annual AC maintenance, while also following a handful of other pointers, can help you maintain your air conditioner while keeping your home cozy too.
Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit
Debris can build up around your outside unit, especially during the fall. When the time comes to rake up the leaves in your yard, be 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 quicker. We want your air conditioner to last as long as possible.
Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat
Keep your thermostat set at the highest temperature you can while still being comfortable. Whenever possible, take advantage of other 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 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 untimely system failure.
Keep Up With AC Maintenance
Keeping a well-maintained system with regular, annual AC maintenance
is so important. Our experts will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and be sure the electric is working properly, the coils and filters are clean and so much more. We take a close look to catch smaller problems before they become big breakdowns and turn in to an AC repair
appointment. Keeping cool and comfy 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 520-200-1048 to set both your mind and system at ease. We look forward to working with you.
