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

October 24, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Keokuk, like get your long sleeved shirts out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you might forget about while preparing for fall – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say see you later to warm weather and we’re headed into cooler months. Along with your routine air conditioner service from WM J Kraus & Son, we have a few tips that might help keep you comfy and get your air conditioner ready for the change in season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Keokuk. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go change out your filter from dirty to clean. A filthy filter means your air conditioner has to run harder to keep you comfortable which might negatively affect your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your vents. A blocked vent might increase your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Keokuk to get your air conditioner checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming cooler months in Keokuk. Annual air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and may also play a role in 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 bit of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to arrange your routine air conditioner service give the pros at WM J Kraus & Son a call at 319-229-2318.
