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

October 24, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Westerville, like get your long sleeved shirts out of storage and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you might forget about while doing your fall prep – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say goodbye to warm weather and we’re leaping into cooler months. Along with your regular air conditioner service from Uptown Heating & Cooling, we have a few tips that can help keep you comfy and get your air conditioner ready for the change in season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Westerville. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go switch out your filter from filthy to clean. A dirty filter means your air conditioner has to work harder to keep you comfortable which may negatively impact your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your vents. A blocked vent has the chance to increase your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the best time in Westerville to get your air conditioner checked out by one of our expert technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the coming cooler months in Westerville. Regular air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and can also play a role in 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 a result of a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every bit of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to set up your regular air conditioner service give the experts at Uptown Heating & Cooling a call at 614-344-6949.
