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

October 24, 2016

There are probably some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Houston, like swap out your closet and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you may forget about while doing your fall prep – like your air conditioner. We’re about to say sayonara to warm weather and we’re diving into cooler months. Along with your annual air conditioner service from Marcos AC & Heating, we have a few tips that can help keep you cozy and get your air conditioner prepared for the change in season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Houston. Before you completely stop using your air conditioner, go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy filter means your air conditioner has to work harder to keep you comfortable which can negatively affect your comfort and lead to 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 might drive up your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Air Conditioner Service
    Fall is the best time in Houston to get your air conditioner checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming cooler months in Houston. Regular air conditioner service can help you get the most out of your air conditioner’s performance, and may also affect 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 bit 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 annual air conditioner service give the experts at Marcos AC & Heating a call at 713-469-3357.
