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

October 24, 2016

Equipping your house for the spring in Des Moines can mean many things; putting your winter jackets back in storage, buying some seeds for a vegetable garden, and don’t forget about confirming your air conditioner is prepped for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling 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 shifting furniture around for the spring season, maybe even bringing the patio furniture outside again, 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.
    Even before you change the thermostat setting from “heat” to “cool,” confirm your air filters are clean. Air filters that are dirty can decrease the lifespan of your system and even impact the quality of air in your home, affecting your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is an ideal time in Des Moines to get your air conditioner examined because it’s right before your system’s peak time of operation. Our professionals at Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling will conduct a thorough inspection 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 days of the year, so staying proactive about its maintenance can make the world of difference sooner rather than later.

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