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

October 24, 2016

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Anchorage, like swap out your closet and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say see you later to warm weather and we’re diving into cooler months. Along with your regular air conditioner service from Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services, we have three tips that may help keep you comfy and get your air conditioner prepped for the change in season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Anchorage. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your air conditioner has to try harder to keep you comfortable which might negatively influence your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Anchorage to get your air conditioner checked out by one of our professional technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming cooler months in Anchorage. Annual air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and can also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a big percentage of the emergency calls we get over these next few months are a result of a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every portion of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your annual air conditioner service give the pros at Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services a call at 907-202-9798.
