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

October 24, 2016

Equipping your house for the spring in Laurel can mean many things; putting your winter jackets back in storage, buying some seeds for your flower garden, and don’t forget about making sure your air conditioner is ready for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from H&C Heating and Cooling will establish 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 clear of debris. Specifically after a brutal winter, debris and dust can increase your energy 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. Unclean filters can shorten the lifespan of your system and even decrease the quality of air in your home, which can cause harm to your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is a great time in Laurel to get your air conditioner reviewed because it’s right before your system’s peak time of operation. Our professionals at H&C Heating and Cooling will conduct a thorough examination 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 days of the year, so staying proactive about your system’s maintenance can make the world of difference before it’s too late.

Stay comfortable as the days get hotter and longer this spring. If you have any queries about getting your home ready for the spring or if you are would like to arrange your annual AC service, give our experts at H&C Heating and Cooling a call at 301-960-3247 to schedule an appointment with us.
