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

October 24, 2016

Equipping your house for the spring in York can include many things; putting your sweaters back in storage, buying some seeds for a vegetable garden, and don’t forget about making sure your air conditioner is set for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning will establish that your home is ready for spring, but don’t stop there – here are some other tips that will keep you comfortable:

  1. Unblock air vents and registers.
    While you are relocating furniture around for the spring season, possibly even bringing some patio furniture back outdoors, don’t forget to check that your cooling vents are unobstructed. Especially after a harsh 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.
    Prior to switching the thermostat setting from “heat” to “cool,” confirm your air filters are clean. Unclean filters can hinder the lifespan of your system and even lower the quality of air in your home, which can cause harm to your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is the perfect time in York to get your air conditioner reviewed because it’s right before your system’s peak time of use. Our professionals at Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning 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 breakdown on the hottest days of the year, so keeping proactive about its maintenance can make the world of difference before it’s too late.

Stay relaxed as the days get hotter and longer this spring. If you have any concerns about getting your home ready for the spring or if you are ready to book your annual AC service, give our experts at Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 717-383-4479 to schedule an appointment with us.
