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 switched 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 keeping your home comfortable too.
Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit
Debris can accumulate around your outside unit, particularly during the fall. When it comes time 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 faster. We want your air conditioner to last as long as possible.
Raise the Temperature on Your Thermostat
Keep your thermostat set at the highest temperature you can while still remaining comfy. Whenever possible, take advantage of 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 shutting off your unit 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 something else that could lead to premature 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 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 major 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 704-233-7363 to set both your mind and system at ease. We look forward to working with you.
