There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Greater Richmond, like hang up your long sleeved shirts and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while doing your fall prep – 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 regular air conditioner service from Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, we have a few tips that may help keep you cozy and get your air conditioner ready for the change in season.
- Check and Change Your Air Filter
This is basic advice for every season in Greater Richmond. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go switch out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your air conditioner has to work harder to keep you comfortable which may negatively affect your comfort and lead to higher bills.
- Unblock Vents and Registers
As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your vents. A blocked vent has the chance to increase your utility bills.
- Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
Fall is the best time in Greater Richmond to get your air conditioner checked out by one of our professional technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the coming cooler months in Greater Richmond. Annual air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and could also impact 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 set up your regular air conditioner service give the pros at Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling a call at 804-302-6657.
