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

October 24, 2016

Equipping your residence for the spring in Moline can include many things; putting your sweaters back in storage, buying some seeds for your flower garden, and don’t forget about ensuring your air conditioner is prepped for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Freed Heating & Air Conditioning will ensure that your home is ready for spring, but don’t stop there – here are some other tips that will keep you comfortable:

  1. Unblock air vents and registers.
    While you are moving furniture around for the spring season, maybe even bringing the patio furniture outside again, don’t forget to make sure that your cooling vents are clear of debris. Especially after a rough winter, debris and dust can increase your utility bills and make your system operate harder than it needs to.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Before you switch that setting from “heat” to “cool,” check to ensure your air filters are not dirty. Air filters that are dirty can decrease the lifespan of your system and even decrease the quality of air in your house, affecting your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is an ideal time in Moline to get your air conditioner examined because it’s near your system’s peak time of use. Our experts at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning will do a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm weather ahead. You assuredly don’t want your air conditioner to breakdown on the hottest times of the year, so being proactive about its maintenance can make the world of difference before it’s too late.

Stay relaxed as the days get hotter and longer this spring.
