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

October 24, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Columbia, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you might forget about while doing your fall prep – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say see you later to warm weather and we’re headed into cooler months. Along with your regular air conditioner service from Watts Electric & A/C Inc, we have a few tips that might help keep you comfy and get your air conditioner ready for the change in season.

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

We want you to enjoy every bit of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your regular air conditioner service give the pros at Watts Electric & A/C Inc a call at 601-736-7362.
