5 Ways to Make Sure Your Air Conditioner is Ready for Fall

October 24, 2016

Getting your home for the spring in Elk River can mean many things; putting your winter jackets back in storage, buying some seeds for flower planting, and don’t forget about confirming your air conditioner is prepped for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Home Comfort Heating & Air will establish that your home is ready for spring, but don’t stop there – here are several other tips that will keep you comfortable:

  1. Unblock air vents and registers.
    When you are relocating furniture around for the spring season, possibly even bringing your patio furniture outdoors, don’t forget to check that your cooling vents are unobstructed. Particularly after a brutal winter, debris and dust can increase your energy bills and make your system run harder than it should.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Even before you change that setting from “heat” to “cool,” confirm your air filters are in good shape. Unclean filters can hinder the lifespan of your system and even impact the quality of air in your house, resulting in a negative affect on your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is the perfect time in Elk River to get your air conditioner checked because it’s just before your system’s peak time of operation. Our experts at Home Comfort Heating & Air will complete a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm temps ahead. You surely don’t want your air conditioner to quit on the hottest times of the year, so staying proactive about your unit’s maintenance can make the world of difference before something happens.

Stay cool as the days get more balmy and longer this spring. If you have any concerns about getting your residence ready for the spring or if you are ready to arrange your annual AC service, give our experts at Home Comfort Heating & Air a call at 763-276-0617 to schedule an appointment with us.
