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

October 24, 2016

Preparing your home for the spring in Winnipeg can mean many things; putting your winter jackets back in storage, buying some seeds for your flower garden, and don’t forget about making sure your air conditioner is prepped for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning will establish that your home is set for spring, but don’t stop there – here are some other tips that will keep you comfortable:

  1. Unblock air vents and registers.
    When you are moving furniture around for the spring season, maybe even bringing some patio furniture outdoors, don’t forget to make sure that your cooling vents are clear of debris. Specifically after a harsh winter, debris and dust can increase your energy costs and make your system run harder than it would need to.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Prior to switching that setting from “heat” to “cool,” make sure that your air filters are in good shape. Unclean filters can decrease the lifespan of your system and even lower the quality of air in your house, resulting in a negative affect on your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is the perfect time in Winnipeg to get your air conditioner reviewed because it’s near your system’s peak time of usage. Our experts at Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning will do a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm season ahead. You surely don’t want your air conditioner to shutdown on the hottest times of the year, so keeping proactive about its maintenance can make the world of difference before it’s too late.

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