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

October 24, 2016

Preparing your house for the spring in Bishop can mean 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 ready for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning 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.
    While you are moving furniture around for the spring season, maybe even bringing the patio furniture outdoors, don’t forget to confirm that your cooling vents are unobstructed. Particularly after a harsh winter, debris and dust can increase your energy bills and make your system operate harder than it would need to.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Prior to switching that setting from “heat” to “cool,” check to ensure your air filters are in good shape. Dirty filters can decrease the lifespan of your system and even impact the quality of air in your residence, affecting your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is an ideal time in Bishop to get your air conditioner checked because it’s near your system’s peak time of usage. Our experts at Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning will complete a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm temps ahead. You surely don’t want your air conditioner to quit on the hottest day of the year, so staying proactive about its maintenance can make the world of difference sooner rather than later.
