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 Libertyville, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say see you later to warm weather and we’re diving into cooler months. Along with your routine air conditioner service from TopTec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical, we have a few tips that might help keep you comfortable and get your air conditioner prepped for the change in season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Libertyville. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A dirty filter means your air conditioner has to work harder to keep you comfortable which can negatively influence your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your vents. A blocked vent could drive up your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the best time in Libertyville to get your air conditioner inspected by one of our professional technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the coming cooler months in Libertyville. 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 large 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 aspect 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 professionals at TopTec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical a call at 847-362-0262.
