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

October 24, 2016

Getting your residence for the spring in Excelsior Springs can involve many things; putting your winter jackets back in storage, buying some seeds for flower planting, and don’t forget about ensuring your air conditioner is prepped for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Colvin's Heating and Cooling will assure that your home is fit 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, possibly even bringing some patio furniture back outdoors, don’t forget to make sure that your cooling vents are unobstructed. Especially after a brutal winter, debris and dust can increase your energy bills and make your system operate harder than it should.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Even before you change that setting from “heat” to “cool,” make sure that your air filters are clean. Dirty filters can decrease the lifespan of your system and even lower the quality of air in your home, which can cause harm to your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is a great time in Excelsior Springs to get your air conditioner examined because it’s near your system’s peak time of use. Our team at Colvin's Heating and Cooling will complete a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm temps ahead. You certainly don’t want your air conditioner to quit on the hottest day of the year, so staying proactive about your system’s maintenance can make the world of difference before it’s too late.

Stay relaxed as the days get warmer and longer this spring. If you have any queries about getting your home ready for the spring or if you are ready to schedule your annual AC service, give our experts at Colvin's Heating and Cooling a call at 816-379-3918 to easily arrange an appointment with us.
