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 ready for fall in San Jose, like get your long sleeved shirts out of storage and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few 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 American HVAC Inc, we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfortable 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 San Jose. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go change out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty 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 could increase your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the best time in San Jose to get your air conditioner inspected by one of our expert technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming cooler months in San Jose. 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 large percentage of the emergency calls we get over these next few months are due to 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 arrange your regular air conditioner service give the pros at American HVAC Inc a call at 408-215-1018.
