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

October 24, 2016

There are probably some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Ellsworth, like hang up your long sleeved shirts and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple 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 headed into cooler months. Along with your annual air conditioner service from Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC, we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfy and get your air conditioner prepared for the change in season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Ellsworth. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go switch out your filter from dusty to clean. A dirty filter means your air conditioner has to work harder to keep you comfortable which might negatively affect 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 drive up your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Ellsworth to get your air conditioner looked at by one of our professional technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming cooler months in Ellsworth. 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 pretty high 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 bit of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to set up your annual air conditioner service give the pros at Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC a call at 715-318-6728.
