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 Opelika, like swap out your closet and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you might forget about while doing your fall prep – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say goodbye to warm weather and we’re headed into cooler months. Along with your regular air conditioner service from Farnell Mechanical, Inc., we have three 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 Opelika. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go switch out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your air conditioner has to try harder to keep you comfortable which might negatively impact 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 has the chance to raise your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Opelika to get your air conditioner looked at by one of our expert technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the coming cooler months in Opelika. 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 big 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 set up your annual air conditioner service give the professionals at Farnell Mechanical, Inc. a call at 334-245-4748.
