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 Marshalltown, like hang up your long sleeved shirts and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may forget about while preparing for fall – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say sayonara to warm weather and we’re leaping into cooler months. Along with your routine air conditioner service from Kapaun & Brown Inc., we have a couple tips that can help keep you cozy and get your air conditioner prepped for the change in season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Marshalltown. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go change out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your air conditioner has to work harder to keep you comfortable which might negatively affect your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, make sure 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 ideal time in Marshalltown 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 upcoming cooler months in Marshalltown. Regular air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and may 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 due to 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 set up your regular air conditioner service give the professionals at Kapaun & Brown Inc. a call at 641-812-2028.
