Your air conditioner has put in a lot of work this summer and we still have more hot weather to go. Just because the date on the calendar has changed over to fall doesn’t mean you’re done 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 staying comfortable too.
Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit
Debris can build up around your outside unit, particularly 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
Set your thermostat at the highest temperature you can while still being cozy. Whenever possible, use supplemental 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 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 switch 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 regular, annual AC maintenance
is so critical. Our professionals will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and ensure the electric is working correctly, the coils and filters are clean and so much more. We take a close look to catch little 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 worried about, and with our annual AC maintenance you don’t have to worry. Give us a call at 208-621-0129 to set both your mind and system at ease. We look forward to working with you.
