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

October 24, 2016

Preparing your home for the spring in Rapid City can involve many things; putting your sweaters back in storage, buying some seeds for a vegetable garden, and don’t forget about confirming your air conditioner is prepped for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Precision Mechanical will ensure that your home is ready for spring, but don’t stop there – here are a few other tips that will keep you comfortable:

  1. Unblock air vents and registers.
    While you are shifting furniture around for the spring season, maybe even bringing your patio furniture back outdoors, don’t forget to confirm that your cooling vents are clear of debris. Especially after a brutal winter, debris and dust can increase your utility bills and make your system run harder than it should.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Before you switch your setting from “heat” to “cool,” make sure that your air filters are in good shape. Air filters that are dirty can shorten the lifespan of your system and even decrease the quality of air in your residence, resulting in a negative affect on your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is an ideal time in Rapid City to get your air conditioner examined because it’s just before your system’s peak time of use. Our professionals at Precision Mechanical will complete a thorough examination of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm weather ahead. You certainly don’t want your air conditioner to breakdown on the hottest day of the year, so being proactive about your unit’s maintenance can make the world of difference before something happens.

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