Your air conditioner has put in a lot of work 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 few other pointers, can help you maintain your air conditioner while staying cozy too.
Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit
Debris can pile up around your outside unit, specifically 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 hinder air flow, causing your system to work harder and wear down faster. 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 remaining cozy. 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 attain 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 something else that could lead to premature system failure.
Keep Up With AC Maintenance
Keeping a well-maintained system with routine, annual AC maintenance
is so essential. 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 an in-depth look to catch small problems before they become huge 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 715-301-0256 to set both your mind and system at ease. We look forward to working with you.
