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

October 24, 2016

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Mount Hope, like swap out your closet and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may forget about while preparing for fall – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say sayonara to warm weather and we’re diving into cooler months. Along with your routine air conditioner service from Appalachian Heating, we have a few tips that might help keep you comfy and get your air conditioner prepped for the change in season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Mount Hope. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go change out your filter from dusty to clean. A dusty filter means your air conditioner has to work harder to keep you comfortable which can negatively influence your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your vents. A blocked vent has the chance to increase your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Mount Hope to get your air conditioner inspected by one of our expert technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming cooler months in Mount Hope. Regular air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and could also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a big percentage of the emergency calls we get over these next few months are a result of a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every bit of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your annual air conditioner service give the professionals at Appalachian Heating a call at 304-707-0600.
