A great way to begin transitioning your HVAC system to fall is by adjusting your air conditioning at night, or completely turning it off.

1) Reschedule your home thermostat
As temperatures cool off during the day, the evening temperatures take a noticeable dip. Usually, the early fall weather will bring nighttime temperatures ranging from the 60s to the 70s. A great way to begin transitioning your HVAC system to fall is by adjusting your air conditioning at night, or completely turning it off. If you turn your AC unit off, make sure to open a few windows or keep your fans on throughout the night. The best part is: you won’t just be helping your HVAC unit transition, you’ll be saving money on your energy bill. Not to mention, you’ll wake up breathing in the fresh air. Nothing beats that.

2) Spruce up the area around your air conditioning unit
This summer has seen a whirlwind of weather conditions. From rainy days to desert-like degrees, New Jersey has had its fair share of unpredictable summer weather. A simple, yet noticeable, way to contribute to your unit’s efficiency is to remove dust, debris, leaves, and branches from around your air conditioning unit. A dust buster or vacuum will refresh your vents and air conditioning unit. Make sure there is no furniture or objects in front of the vents of the air conditioner unit that will block your unit.

3) Schedule a furnace tune-up
Imagine it’s the first day your family sighs and says, “Well, it’s officially cold out.” We all know the day when the weeks of denying summer are over finally arrives. As you go to turn on your furnace, you hear this: “BUMP…squeak…siZzle…thUMp.” You know what we’re talking about. Don’t wait until it’s officially cold out and your furnace isn’t working to make the call. Get ahead of the cold temperatures and schedule a furnace tune-up.

4) Invest in a humidifier/dehumidifier
Dehumidifiers are the secret ingredient to comfortable air throughout the year. Essentially, humidifiers ensure that the moisture levels of your home are regulated. As the air cools down, humidity levels decrease and the air feels dryer. If your home has too much dry air, you might experience dry skin and difficulty breathing. It is extra important, as the humidity levels are changing, to make sure that your humidifier is clean and ready to keep you comfortable throughout the fall and winter.
