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

October 24, 2016

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Shelby, like get your long sleeved shirts out of storage and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while getting ready for fall – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say goodbye to warm weather and we’re headed into cooler months. Along with your annual air conditioner service from Hopper Heating and Air, we have a couple tips that might help keep you comfortable 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 Shelby. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your air conditioner has to try harder to keep you comfortable which might negatively influence your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Shelby to get your air conditioner looked at by one of our professional technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming cooler months in Shelby. Regular 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 big 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 portion of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your regular air conditioner service give the experts at Hopper Heating and Air a call at 704-233-7363.
