Your air conditioner has worked hard this summer and we still have more heat on its way. Just because the date on the calendar has moved 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 few other tricks, can help you maintain your air conditioner while remaining comfy too.
Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit
Debris can build up 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 impact air flow, causing your system to work harder and wear down quicker. We want your air conditioner to last as long as it was designed to.
Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat
Set your thermostat at the highest temperature you can while still being cozy. Whenever possible, utilize other cooling methods such as fans. The lower you set your thermostat
, the harder your system will have to work to reach that temperature. You may think turning your unit off completely will save on energy and help your system, but that makes more work 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 thing that could lead to untimely system failure.
Keep Up With AC Maintenance
Keeping a well-maintained system with regular, annual AC maintenance
is so essential. Our technicians 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 an in-depth look to catch small problems before they become huge 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 952-373-0377 to set both your mind and system at ease. We look forward to working with you.
