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

October 24, 2016

Getting your home for the spring in Jefferson City can involve many things; putting your winter clothes back in storage, buying some seeds for a vegetable garden, and don’t forget about confirming your air conditioner is set for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Stieferman Heating Company Inc will establish that your home is ready 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, possibly even bringing some patio furniture outdoors, don’t forget to check that your cooling vents are unobstructed. Specifically after a brutal winter, debris and dust can increase your energy costs and make your system work harder than it would need to.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Prior to switching your setting from “heat” to “cool,” confirm your air filters are not dirty. Air filters that are dirty can decrease the lifespan of your system and even lower the quality of air in your house, resulting in a negative affect on your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is an ideal time in Jefferson City to get your air conditioner checked because it’s near your system’s peak time of use. Our team at Stieferman Heating Company Inc will do a thorough examination of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm weather ahead. You certainly don’t want your air conditioner to breakdown on the hottest days of the year, so keeping proactive about its maintenance can make the world of difference before it’s too late.

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