Fall Air Conditioner Maintenance

Getting your home ready for winter is important. There’s so much to do like putting away your patio furniture, raking the leaves, cleaning out the gutters and mowing the lawn for the last time before the snow arrives. It might seem overwhelming and you definitely might forget something, but one thing you shouldn’t forget about is fall air conditioner maintenance. When the temperature drops your heating and cooling system will likely switch from cooling to heating, which means you won’t be using your air conditioner until the spring at the earliest.

It might not seem like a big deal in the fall, but it’s important to perform air conditioner maintenance at least once a year and the fall is the best time to do it. The reason it’s the best time of year for maintenance is because your air conditioner has been operating hard all summer long and needs maintenance. Doing it in the fall means you won’t forget about it when the spring comes. Air Conditioner Pro HVAC technicians are also very busy in the spring and you may have to wait a day or two for your appointment if you wait until spring.

Key Fall Air Conditioner Maintenance Tips

  • Change Your Air Filter: Changing the air filter is important. A dirty air filter can result in quite a few problems for your air conditioner, the main one being an inability to cool your home. Fast-forward to the first time in the spring you decide to turn on your air conditioner and all you get is warm air. By changing your filter now you can avoid potential problems and allow cool air to circulate throughout your home.
  • Clean It Good: After a full summer of use your air conditioner builds up a lot of dirt and grime. While changing the filter is a good first step it’s also important to give it a good cleaning. Wipe down the inner coils, outer casings, and removing and leaves or other debris that’s inside your unit is a great way to ensure it’s ready for the spring.
  • Scheduled Maintenance: One of the most important things you can do before tucking your air conditioner in for a long winter’s nap is to call a professional technician from Air Conditioner Pro to take a look. Professional air conditioner maintenance is the best way to keep your air conditioner working properly and efficiently. It’s also the best way to find and fix problems while they’re small, so they don’t cost you big time in the spring.
  • Air Conditioner Replacement: If your air conditioner is getting on in years you might need to start thinking about replacing it. One of the best times of the year to purchase a new air conditioner is in the fall when prices are lower. Most homeowners wait until the spring or summer to buy new units and manufacturers know this.
