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 prepped for fall in Rockford, like get your long sleeved shirts out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you may forget about while preparing for fall – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say see you later to warm weather and we’re leaping into cooler months. Along with your regular air conditioner service from Temperature Doctors Heating & Cooling, Inc, we have three tips that may help keep you comfy and get your air conditioner prepared for the change in season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Rockford. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your air conditioner has to work harder to keep you comfortable which might negatively impact your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, ensure 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 best time in Rockford to get your air conditioner inspected by one of our expert technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the approaching cooler months in Rockford. Annual air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and may also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a large 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 routine air conditioner service give the experts at Temperature Doctors Heating & Cooling, Inc a call at (815)914-6197.
