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

October 24, 2016

Preparing your house for the spring in Hattiesburg can involve many things; putting your sweaters back in storage, buying some seeds for your flower garden, and don’t forget about confirming your air conditioner is prepped for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning will ensure that your home is fit 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, maybe even bringing your patio furniture back outdoors, don’t forget to make sure that your cooling vents are unobstructed. Particularly after a rough 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.
    Before you switch the thermostat setting from “heat” to “cool,” make sure that your air filters are in good shape. Dirty filters can shorten the lifespan of your system and even lower the quality of air in your residence, affecting your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is the perfect time in Hattiesburg to get your air conditioner checked because it’s just before your system’s peak time of operation. Our team at Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning will do a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm weather ahead. You surely don’t want your air conditioner to breakdown on the hottest times of the year, so keeping proactive about your system’s maintenance can make the world of difference before it’s too late.

Stay comfortable as the days get warmer and longer this spring.
