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

October 24, 2016

Getting your residence for the spring in Rapid City can involve many things; putting your sweaters back in storage, buying some seeds for a vegetable garden, and don’t forget about confirming your air conditioner is set for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Street Heating and Cooling will establish that your home is set for spring, but don’t stop there – here are several other tips that will keep you comfortable:

  1. Unblock air vents and registers.
    While you are relocating furniture around for the spring season, maybe even bringing some patio furniture outdoors, don’t forget to confirm that your cooling vents are clear of debris. Particularly after a brutal winter, debris and dust can increase your energy costs and make your system run harder than it needs to.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Prior to switching that setting from “heat” to “cool,” check to ensure your air filters are clean. Unclean 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 an ideal time in Rapid City to get your air conditioner reviewed because it’s near your system’s peak time of use. Our team at Street Heating and Cooling will complete a thorough review of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm season ahead. You assuredly don’t want your air conditioner to shutdown on the hottest day of the year, so being proactive about your system’s maintenance can make the world of difference before something happens.

Stay cool as the days get warmer and longer this spring. If you have any questions about getting your house ready for the spring or if you are want to arrange your annual AC service, give our experts at Street Heating and Cooling a call at 605-206-3915 to schedule an appointment with us.
