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

October 24, 2016

Getting your house for the spring in Odessa can include many things; putting your winter clothes back in storage, buying some seeds for flower planting, and don’t forget about ensuring your air conditioner is prepped for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning will assure that your home is fit for spring, but don’t stop there – here are some other tips that will keep you comfortable:

  1. Unblock air vents and registers.
    When you are shifting furniture around for the spring season, possibly even bringing your patio furniture outdoors, don’t forget to make sure that your cooling vents are unobstructed. Specifically after a brutal winter, debris and dust can increase your energy costs 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 clean. Air filters that are dirty can shorten the lifespan of your system and even lower the quality of air in your house, resulting in a negative affect on your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is a great time in Odessa to get your air conditioner examined because it’s right before your system’s peak time of usage. Our professionals at Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning will conduct a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm weather ahead. You surely don’t want your air conditioner to shutdown on the hottest day of the year, so keeping proactive about its maintenance can make the world of difference before something happens.

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