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

October 24, 2016

Equipping your residence for the spring in Arlington can involve many things; putting your winter jackets back in storage, buying some seeds for flower planting, and don’t forget about ensuring your air conditioner is prepped for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning will ensure that your home is ready for spring, but don’t stop there – here are a few other tips that will keep you comfortable:

  1. Unblock air vents and registers.
    When you are relocating furniture around for the spring season, maybe even bringing some patio furniture back outdoors, don’t forget to confirm that your cooling vents are not blocked. Especially after a brutal winter, debris and dust can increase your energy costs and make your system work harder than it would need to.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Prior to switching that setting from “heat” to “cool,” check to ensure your air filters are in good shape. Unclean filters can decrease the lifespan of your system and even impact the quality of air in your home, resulting in a negative affect on your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is a great time in Arlington to get your air conditioner reviewed because it’s just before your system’s peak time of operation. Our professionals at Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning will conduct a thorough examination of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm temps ahead. You certainly don’t want your air conditioner to quit on the hottest days of the year, so staying proactive about its maintenance can make the world of difference before it’s too late.

Stay cool as the days get warmer and longer this spring.
