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

October 24, 2016

Getting your residence for the spring in Beaverton can involve many things; putting your winter jackets back in storage, buying some seeds for your flower garden, and don’t forget about ensuring your air conditioner is prepped for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Garoken Energy Co. Inc. will establish that your home is ready for spring, but don’t stop there – here are some other tips that will keep you comfortable:

  1. Unblock air vents and registers.
    As you are shifting furniture around for the spring season, maybe even bringing some patio furniture outside again, don’t forget to make sure that your cooling vents are not blocked. Specifically after a harsh winter, debris and dust can increase your utility bills and make your system operate 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 not dirty. Air filters that are dirty can shorten the lifespan of your system and even impact the quality of air in your house, affecting your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is an ideal time in Beaverton to get your air conditioner examined because it’s near your system’s peak time of use. Our experts at Garoken Energy Co. Inc. will complete a thorough examination of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm weather ahead. You surely don’t want your air conditioner to shutdown on the hottest times of the year, so staying proactive about your unit’s maintenance can make the world of difference before something happens.

Stay relaxed 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 ready to schedule your annual AC service, give our experts at Garoken Energy Co. Inc. a call at 503-374-1934 to schedule an appointment with us.
