  • How to Prepare Your Air Conditioner for Fall


    Living in Florida, our air conditioners get a workout during the summertime. But as the fall season approaches and temperature drops (if only slightly), it’s important to give your AC some necessary attention. After all, it did just work in overdrive the past four months. Here’s how you can easily prepare your air conditioner for fall.

    1. Change the Air Filter

    You should be changing the air filter in your HVAC system regularly, but especially after a hot summer. When you use your air conditioner more than usual, the air filter can easily become bogged down with dander, dirt, dust and the like, making your system work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature. Before the fall season kicks in, make sure you replace that old air filter.

    2. Clean the Area Around the Condenser Unit

    By the end of summer, dirt, grime, weeds, and leaves can build up around the condenser unit. This can potentially disrupt clean air flow and hinder the efficiency of your system. Use a hose and remove all debris by gently washing away any debris that has built up one HVAC system. Clip overgrown grass and rake any grass clippings, leaves or weeds.

    3. Schedule a Maintenance Tune-Up

    To keep your system functioning efficiently, you should schedule an AC maintenance tune-up with a reputable HVAC company at least once a year. During a maintenance checkup, an experienced technician will perform a full inspection and tune-up of your system. This way, your system will function as efficiently as possible, even after working overtime during the summer months.
