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

October 24, 2016

Getting your house for the spring in Carpentersville can involve many things; putting your winter jackets back in storage, buying some seeds for a vegetable garden, and don’t forget about making sure your air conditioner is prepped for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc will assure 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, possibly even bringing the patio furniture outdoors, don’t forget to confirm that your cooling vents are clear of debris. Especially after a rough winter, debris and dust can increase your energy bills and make your system operate harder than it should.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Prior to switching your setting from “heat” to “cool,” check to ensure your air filters are not dirty. Unclean filters can hinder the lifespan of your system and even decrease the quality of air in your home, resulting in a negative affect on your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is an ideal time in Carpentersville to get your air conditioner examined because it’s just before your system’s peak time of use. Our professionals at Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc will conduct 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 shutdown on the hottest day of the year, so being proactive about your system’s maintenance can make the world of difference before it’s too late.

Stay relaxed as the days get more balmy and longer this spring.
