These are the days when everyone goes back and forth between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of exertion throughout the summer, it still needs a little love before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping up with your air conditioner maintenance can make a big difference in the comfort of your home. That, as well as these other tips, can keep you comfortable until it finally gets cooler:
Turn up your thermostat temperature.
Turning up your thermostat
temperature during these days moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable indoors. Turning off your air conditioner completely will not save you energy in the long run, but instead it will just make it more difficult to turn your system back on when you need it again in the fall. Setting your thermostat to a reasonable temperature is a good way to maintain a balance in your home as fall comes.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave additional debris and gunk by your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or lots of rain throughout the season.
