Your air conditioner has worked hard this summer and we still have more hot weather to go. Just because the date on the calendar has moved over to fall doesn’t mean you’re through with your AC for the season. Staying on top of annual AC maintenance, while also following a couple other tricks, 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, specifically 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 possible.
Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat
Have your thermostat set at the highest temperature you can while still staying comfy. 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 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 critical. Our experts will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and ensure the electric is working properly, the coils and filters are clean and so much more. We take an in-depth look to catch smaller 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 715-301-0727 to set both your mind and system at ease. We look forward to working with you.
