Your air conditioner has had a lot of work to do 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. Staying up with annual AC maintenance, while also following a couple other tips, can help you maintain your air conditioner while remaining comfy too.
Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit
Debris can accumulate around your outside unit, particularly during the fall. When the time arrives to rake up the leaves in your yard, be 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 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 staying comfy. Whenever possible, use additional 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 creates 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 contributing factor that could lead to early system failure.
Keep Up With AC Maintenance
Keeping a well-maintained system with normal, annual AC maintenance
is so critical. Our technicians will look at your air conditioner thoroughly and be sure the electric is working as it should, 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 worry about, and with our annual AC maintenance you don’t have to worry. Give us a call at 301-363-4699 to set both your mind and system at ease. We look forward to working with you.
