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

October 24, 2016

Getting your house for the spring in the Bay Area can involve many things; putting your winter clothes back in storage, buying some seeds for flower planting, and don’t forget about confirming your air conditioner is prepped for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Contra Costa Heating & AC will ensure that your home is set for spring, but don’t stop there – here are a few other tips that will keep you comfortable:

  1. Unblock air vents and registers.
    While you are relocating furniture around for the spring season, maybe even bringing the patio furniture back outdoors, don’t forget to check that your cooling vents are clear of debris. Specifically after a harsh winter, debris and dust can increase your energy costs and make your system run harder than it would need to.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Before you switch the thermostat setting from “heat” to “cool,” make sure that your air filters are not dirty. Air filters that are dirty can hinder the lifespan of your system and even impact the quality of air in your residence, affecting your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is a great time in the Bay Area to get your air conditioner reviewed because it’s near your system’s peak time of use. Our professionals at Contra Costa Heating & AC will do a thorough review of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm season ahead. You certainly don’t want your air conditioner to shutdown on the hottest days of the year, so staying proactive about your unit’s maintenance can make the world of difference before something happens.

Stay relaxed as the days get more balmy and longer this spring. If you have any queries about getting your home ready for the spring or if you are want to schedule your annual AC service, give our experts at Contra Costa Heating & AC a call at 510-343-9841 to easily arrange an appointment with us.
