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

October 24, 2016

Equipping your home for the spring in Sandpoint can involve 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 set for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Age Heating & Cooling will assure that your home is fit 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 outdoors, don’t forget to check that your cooling vents are clear of debris. Particularly after a rough winter, debris and dust can increase your utility bills and make your system work harder than it should.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Before you switch your setting from “heat” to “cool,” make sure that your air filters are in good shape. Dirty filters can shorten the lifespan of your system and even lower the quality of air in your residence, which can cause harm to your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is a great time in Sandpoint to get your air conditioner reviewed because it’s right before your system’s peak time of operation. Our professionals at Age Heating & Cooling will complete a thorough review of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm weather ahead. You certainly don’t want your air conditioner to quit on the hottest day of the year, so keeping proactive about your unit’s maintenance can make the world of difference before something happens.

Stay cool as the days get warmer and longer this spring. If you have any questions about getting your house ready for the spring or if you are would like to schedule your annual AC service, give our experts at Age Heating & Cooling a call at 208-578-4258 to schedule an appointment with us.
