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

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Albuquerque, like hang up your long sleeved shirts and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you could possibly forget about while getting ready for fall – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say see you later to warm weather and we’re leaping into cooler months. Along with your annual air conditioner service from Desert Suns Heating & Cooling, we have a couple tips that can help keep you cozy and get your air conditioner prepared for the change in season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Albuquerque. 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 work harder to keep you comfortable which might negatively affect your comfort and lead to 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 bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Albuquerque to get your air conditioner looked at by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming cooler months in Albuquerque. Routine air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and may also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a large 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 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 pros at Desert Suns Heating & Cooling a call at 505-994-9176 or make an appointment with us online.
