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

October 24, 2016

Preparing your home for the spring in Crystal and Twin Cities can include 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 GV Heating & Air will assure that your home is ready for spring, but don’t stop there – here are several other tips that will keep you comfortable:

  1. Unblock air vents and registers.
    When you are shifting furniture around for the spring season, maybe even bringing some patio furniture outdoors, don’t forget to confirm that your cooling vents are not blocked. Especially after a rough winter, debris and dust can increase your utility bills and make your system operate harder than it would need to.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Before you switch your setting from “heat” to “cool,” check to ensure your air filters are clean. Air filters that are dirty can hinder the lifespan of your system and even decrease the quality of air in your home, resulting in a negative affect on your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is a great time in Crystal and Twin Cities to get your air conditioner examined because it’s right before your system’s peak time of use. Our experts at GV Heating & Air will do a thorough inspection 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 being proactive about your system’s maintenance can make the world of difference sooner rather than later.

Stay cool as the days get more balmy and longer this spring. If you have any queries about getting your house ready for the spring or if you are would like to schedule your annual AC service, give our experts at GV Heating & Air a call at 763-535-2000 to conveniently book an appointment with us.
