Last week marked the first day of fall, which means that summer is officially over according to our calendars. Even though we can still expect some warm weather in the foreseeable future, the hottest days of the year are most likely behind us and temperatures will begin cooling down before we know it. During this transitional time of year, many people have questions about what to do with their air conditioners as they prepare for the upcoming heating season. Today we’re going to talk about air conditioner problems to look out for at the end of summer, how you can save energy as it gets cooler outside and what to do with your air conditioner when you’re done using it for the year!
The end of summer is one of the times of year that air conditioners can start to suffer from performance problems. Even though the weather is cooling down and your air conditioner has less of a workload, problems can develop from the wear and tear that your system has undergone over the past few months. Some things to look out for at the end of summer include:
Now that it’s getting cooler outside, there are going to be more and more days that you can open up your windows and let in some fresh air. On these cooler days, turn off your air conditioner while your windows are open to save energy. In addition, consider raising your thermostat settings at the end of summer since your home will be naturally cooler and you will likely be able to stay comfortable with warmer settings, especially when you turn on your ceiling fans.
