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

October 24, 2016

Getting your residence for the spring in Des Moines can mean many things; putting your winter jackets back in storage, buying some seeds for your flower garden, and don’t forget about ensuring your air conditioner is ready for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Heartland Heating & Cooling will assure that your home is fit for spring, but don’t stop there – here are a few other tips that will keep you comfortable:

  1. Unblock air vents and registers.
    As you are moving furniture around for the spring season, maybe even bringing your patio furniture back outdoors, don’t forget to confirm that your cooling vents are unobstructed. Particularly after a brutal winter, debris and dust can increase your utility bills and make your system run harder than it should.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Before you switch the thermostat setting from “heat” to “cool,” make sure that your air filters are in good shape. Unclean filters can shorten the lifespan of your system and even lower the quality of air in your residence, which can cause harm to your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is an ideal time in Des Moines to get your air conditioner checked because it’s just before your system’s peak time of operation. Our experts at Heartland Heating & Cooling will complete a thorough review of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm season ahead. You certainly don’t want your air conditioner to quit on the hottest days of the year, so keeping proactive about its maintenance can make the world of difference sooner rather than later.

Stay relaxed as the days get more balmy and longer this spring.
