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

October 24, 2016

Preparing your home for the spring in Derby can mean many things; putting your winter clothes 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 Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning will establish 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.
    While you are shifting furniture around for the spring season, possibly even bringing some patio furniture outside again, don’t forget to check that your cooling vents are not blocked. Specifically after a rough winter, debris and dust can increase your energy bills and make your system work harder than it would need to.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Before you switch the thermostat setting from “heat” to “cool,” make sure that your air filters are in good shape. Unclean filters can hinder the lifespan of your system and even lower the quality of air in your residence, affecting your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is a great time in Derby to get your air conditioner examined because it’s right before your system’s peak time of use. Our experts at Giordanos Heating and 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 breakdown on the hottest days of the year, so keeping proactive about your system’s maintenance can make the world of difference sooner rather than later.

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