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 ready for fall in Pocatello, like get your long sleeved shirts out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some 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 diving into cooler months. Along with your annual air conditioner service from Vogts Heating & Air, we have a few tips that might help keep you comfy and get your air conditioner prepared for the change in season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Pocatello. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go switch out your filter from filthy to clean. A dirty filter means your air conditioner has to run harder to keep you comfortable which can negatively impact your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your vents. A blocked vent might raise your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Pocatello to get your air conditioner inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming cooler months in Pocatello. Regular air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and could 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 aspect of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to arrange your regular air conditioner service give the professionals at Vogts Heating & Air a call at 208-621-0129.
