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

October 24, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Cedar Rapids, like get your long sleeved shirts out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – 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 routine air conditioner service from Ilten's Incorporated, we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your air conditioner prepped for the change in season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Cedar Rapids. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your air conditioner has to try harder to keep you comfortable which may negatively impact your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your vents. A blocked vent could increase your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Cedar Rapids to get your air conditioner checked out by one of our expert technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming cooler months in Cedar Rapids. Annual air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and can also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a big percentage of the emergency calls we get over these next few months are due to lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every aspect 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 routine air conditioner service give the pros at Ilten's Incorporated a call at 319-208-3295.
