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

October 24, 2016

Preparing your house for the spring in Plainfield can involve many things; putting your sweaters back in storage, buying some seeds for a vegetable garden, and don’t forget about ensuring your air conditioner is prepped for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from PWA Heating & Cooling Inc will establish 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.
    As you are moving furniture around for the spring season, potentially even bringing the patio furniture outdoors, don’t forget to check that your cooling vents are clear of debris. Specifically after a rough winter, debris and dust can increase your energy costs and make your system operate harder than it would need to.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Prior to switching the thermostat setting from “heat” to “cool,” make sure that your air filters are clean. Air filters that are dirty can shorten the lifespan of your system and even impact the quality of air in your home, affecting your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is a great time in Plainfield to get your air conditioner examined because it’s just before your system’s peak time of operation. Our team at PWA Heating & Cooling Inc will do a thorough examination of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm weather ahead. You surely don’t want your air conditioner to shutdown on the hottest times of the year, so keeping proactive about your unit’s maintenance can make the world of difference before it’s too late.

Stay cool as the days get more balmy and longer this spring. If you have any concerns about getting your home ready for the spring or if you are would like to book your annual AC service, give our experts at PWA Heating & Cooling Inc a call at 815-410-1231 to easily arrange an appointment with us.
