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

October 24, 2016

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in West Jefferson, like hang up your long sleeved shirts and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you might forget about while preparing for fall – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say sayonara to warm weather and we’re leaping into cooler months. Along with your regular air conditioner service from West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc., we have a few tips that might help keep you comfy and get your air conditioner ready for the change in season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in West Jefferson. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go change out your filter from dirty to clean. A dirty filter means your air conditioner has to try harder to keep you comfortable which can negatively affect your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your vents. A blocked vent might drive up your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the best time in West Jefferson to get your air conditioner inspected by one of our professional technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming cooler months in West Jefferson. Regular air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and may also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls we get over these next few months are attributed to a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every portion of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to arrange your regular air conditioner service give the professionals at West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc. a call at 614-450-1575.
