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

October 24, 2016

Equipping your home for the spring in Pella can mean many things; putting your winter jackets back in storage, buying some seeds for your flower garden, and don’t forget about confirming your air conditioner is set for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating will establish that your home is fit for spring, but don’t stop there – here are several other tips that will keep you comfortable:

  1. Unblock air vents and registers.
    While you are moving furniture around for the spring season, potentially even bringing some patio furniture outside again, don’t forget to confirm that your cooling vents are clear of debris. Particularly after a rough winter, debris and dust can increase your energy costs and make your system work harder than it would need to.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Even before you change the thermostat setting from “heat” to “cool,” confirm your air filters are not dirty. Dirty filters can shorten the lifespan of your system and even impact the quality of air in your residence, resulting in a negative affect on your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is the perfect time in Pella to get your air conditioner checked because it’s right before your system’s peak time of use. Our team at Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating will conduct a thorough examination of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm weather ahead. You certainly don’t want your air conditioner to shutdown on the hottest times of the year, so keeping proactive about your system’s maintenance can make the world of difference sooner rather than later.

Stay relaxed as the days get hotter and longer this spring. If you have any questions about getting your house ready for the spring or if you are ready to book your annual AC service, give our experts at Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating a call at 641-628-3621 to easily arrange an appointment with us.
