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 prepared for fall in Sacramento, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say goodbye to warm weather and we’re leaping into cooler months. Along with your regular air conditioner service from American HVAC Inc, we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your air conditioner prepped for the change in season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Sacramento. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your air conditioner has to try harder to keep you comfortable which may negatively impact your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your vents. A blocked vent could drive up your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the best time in Sacramento to get your air conditioner checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the approaching cooler months in Sacramento. Routine 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 pretty high 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 American HVAC Inc a call at 916-243-6714.
