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

October 24, 2016

Preparing your house for the spring in Marshalltown can include many things; putting your winter clothes back in storage, buying some seeds for your flower garden, and don’t forget about ensuring your air conditioner is ready for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from B & G HVAC will ensure 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.
    While you are shifting furniture around for the spring season, maybe even bringing your patio furniture back outdoors, don’t forget to confirm that your cooling vents are clear of debris. Specifically after a rough winter, debris and dust can increase your energy costs and make your system work harder than it needs to.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Before you switch that setting from “heat” to “cool,” make sure that your air filters are in good shape. Air filters that are dirty can decrease the lifespan of your system and even lower the quality of air in your residence, affecting your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is an ideal time in Marshalltown to get your air conditioner checked because it’s near your system’s peak time of usage. Our experts at B & G HVAC will complete a thorough examination of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm temps ahead. You assuredly don’t want your air conditioner to quit on the hottest day of the year, so keeping proactive about its 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 queries about getting your residence ready for the spring or if you are would like to book your annual AC service, give our experts at B & G HVAC a call at 641-316-3360 to schedule an appointment with us.
