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 prepped for fall in Des Moines, like swap out your closet and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say goodbye to warm weather and we’re leaping into cooler months. Along with your routine air conditioner service from Heartland Heating & Cooling, we have a few tips that may help keep you comfy and get your air conditioner prepped for the change in season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Des Moines. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your air conditioner has to work harder to keep you comfortable which can negatively affect your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Des Moines to get your air conditioner inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming cooler months in Des Moines. Regular air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and may 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 aspect of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to arrange your annual air conditioner service give the pros at Heartland Heating & Cooling a call at 515-344-3579.
