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

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Bakersfield, like get your long sleeved shirts out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you could possibly forget about while doing your fall prep – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say goodbye to warm weather and we’re leaping into cooler months. Along with your regular air conditioner service from Hillcrest Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we have three tips that might help keep you comfortable and get your air conditioner ready for the change in season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Bakersfield. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A dirty filter means your air conditioner has to work harder to keep you comfortable which may negatively impact your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your vents. A blocked vent might drive up your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Bakersfield to get your air conditioner inspected by one of our expert technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the approaching cooler months in Bakersfield. Regular air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and may also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls we get over these next few months are a result of a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every bit of the season in comfort.
