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 Auburn, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may forget about while doing your fall prep – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say sayonara to warm weather and we’re headed into cooler months. Along with your routine air conditioner service from Forster Heating, 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 Auburn. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go switch out your filter from dusty to clean. A filthy filter means your air conditioner has to work harder to keep you comfortable which can negatively impact your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your vents. A blocked vent could increase your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the best time in Auburn to get your air conditioner inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming cooler months in Auburn. Regular air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and could also impact 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 attributed to 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 arrange your annual air conditioner service give the professionals at Forster Heating a call at 530-885-8081.
