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 prepared for fall in Gresham, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you might forget about while preparing for fall – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say see you later to warm weather and we’re diving into cooler months. Along with your routine air conditioner service from Honke Heating & AC, we have a couple tips that may help keep you cozy and get your air conditioner prepared for the change in season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Gresham. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your air conditioner has to run harder to keep you comfortable which may negatively affect your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your vents. A blocked vent might increase your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the best time in Gresham to get your air conditioner checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming cooler months in Gresham. Routine air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and may also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a big percentage of the emergency calls we get over these next few months are a result of a 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 schedule your routine air conditioner service give the pros at Honke Heating & AC a call at 503-663-8033.
