Even in Arizona, summer can’t last forever. Soon the sun will start to go down a little earlier and the heat will begin to lose its edge. This change of temperatures allows us to ease off of our air conditioners and switch over to heating that will be necessary during the cooler months. In this week’s article, we are going to take a look at tips on how to transition your HVAC system from summer to autumn.
Lessen the Load on Your AC
As the temperatures decrease, increase the setting on your thermostat so that your air conditioner doesn’t have to work so hard. Use fans to circulate the air in your home and crack open the windows. The cool air coming in will keep the temperature low without needing to trigger your air conditioning. During the day, make sure to keep the blinds drawn to keep out any heat.
Shut Off AC After Sundown
Naturally cool nights mean that there is little need for air conditioning. Simply turn off your AC unit when the sun goes down to help save on cooling costs. If it is still a little too toasty for your liking, follow the previous tip by using a combination of fans and open windows to keep cool.
Book a Maintenance Appointment
Having your HVAC inspected twice a year can help to spot problems and alleviate repair costs in the long run. Fall and spring are the perfect time for biannual maintenance. You can have the active half of your system checked to make sure it didn’t sustain too much wear and tear over the previous season, while at the same time checking for any potential issues on the other half you’re going to need for the next.
