Just because the calendar tells us fall is here, doesn’t signify that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system quite yet. This is the time of year when everyone switches between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of work throughout the summer, it still needs a little maintenance before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping up with your air conditioner maintenance can make a large difference in the comfort of your home. That, as well as these other recommendations, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:
Boost your thermostat temperature.
Turning up your thermostat
temperature during these days moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable inside. Turning off your air conditioner completely doesn’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it will just make it tougher to turn your system back on when you need it again in the fall. Setting your thermostat to a modest temperature is a simple way to maintain a balance in your home as temperatures rise.
Clean around your outdoor unit.
The winter can leave extra debris and gunk around your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or a lot of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the time to clean up your post-winter yard, at least make sure that the area around your system is clear. Debris can hamper air-flow for your air conditioner
, causing your system to work harder than it should.
Keep up with air conditioner maintenance.

Contact our professionals at KDM Service Corporation and they will properly inspect your system to assure that everything is working efficiently; the coils and filters are clean and that it made it through the winter undamaged.
