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

October 24, 2016

Preparing your residence for the spring in Portland can mean many things; putting your winter clothes back in storage, buying some seeds for a vegetable garden, and don’t forget about confirming your air conditioner is prepped for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Three Rivers Heating & Cooling will ensure that your home is ready for spring, but don’t stop there – here are a few other tips that will keep you comfortable:

  1. Unblock air vents and registers.
    When you are moving furniture around for the spring season, possibly even bringing the patio furniture outside again, don’t forget to check that your cooling vents are clear of debris. Especially after a rough winter, debris and dust can increase your energy costs and make your system operate harder than it needs to.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Even before you change the thermostat setting from “heat” to “cool,” check to ensure your air filters are in good shape. Dirty filters can decrease the lifespan of your system and even lower the quality of air in your house, which can cause harm to your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is a great time in Portland to get your air conditioner checked because it’s just before your system’s peak time of usage. Our experts at Three Rivers Heating & Cooling will conduct a thorough review of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm weather ahead. You surely don’t want your air conditioner to breakdown on the hottest days of the year, so keeping proactive about its maintenance can make the world of difference before it’s too late.

Stay comfortable as the days get more balmy and longer this spring.
