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

October 24, 2016

Preparing your home for the spring in Manassas can mean many things; putting your winter clothes back in storage, buying some seeds for your flower garden, and don’t forget about making sure your air conditioner is set for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Air-Right Energy Design, Inc. will ensure 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 shifting furniture around for the spring season, potentially even bringing some patio furniture back outdoors, don’t forget to confirm that your cooling vents are unobstructed. Particularly after a rough 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 that setting from “heat” to “cool,” check to ensure your air filters are clean. Unclean filters can shorten the lifespan of your system and even decrease the quality of air in your house, which can cause harm to your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is the perfect time in Manassas to get your air conditioner checked because it’s near your system’s peak time of usage. Our experts at Air-Right Energy Design, Inc. will complete 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 shutdown on the hottest day of the year, so keeping proactive about your unit’s maintenance can make the world of difference before something happens.

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