After Labor Day, most of us start preparing for the cooler Fall weather. And this time of year, we make changes to how we use our central air units. In the beginning of Fall, the weather is still warm in some areas, which means that some people will still use their central air conditioners. As the season progresses and the weather becomes cooler outside, we begin to adjust the temperature on our thermostats. Personally, I look forward to this time of year because not only do I increase the temperature on my thermostat, but I also open my windows during the evenings to allow the cool breeze to flow inside. Additionally, I use my ceiling fan more because the weather is cool enough for it. I live in an area where the weather is pretty brutal during the Summer, so my central air conditioner is usually running every day, so I am glad when the Fall weather comes around because I can give my HVAC unit a much needed break after the Summer. During the Summer, I keep my thermostat at 76 degrees, which is close to the recommended temperature of 78 degrees. However, during the Fall, I increase my thermostat to 78 degrees and my home is perfectly comfortable. So far, the air conditioner has not been running a lot during the days. In fact, one morning I woke up and the indoor temperature was 74 degrees, which means that the overnight temperature was rather cold. It warmed up that day and eventually the central air conditioner cycled on, but it did not take long for it to cycle off again.
