Fall is upon us, and it’s time to prepare your air conditioning for this season of cooler weather. We’re sharing some tips to help you and your AC this autumn season.

Allow the heater to run:

The first time you run your heater this season, it may release a burnt smell. No worries, that odor is simply the smell of dust that has built up over the past, dormant months. The smell should dissipate after the heater runs a couple times.

Check on your air filters:

The weather change signifies it may be time to also change out your air filter. It is important to clean or replace your filter each month in order to prevent allergens from building up and obstructing the airflow in your home. In addition, instilling the habit of checking regularly on your air filters could help save you money on your next energy bill.

Clean build-up gathered around the condenser unit:

Summer most likely left your condenser covered in debris such as mud, weeds, and grime. This build-up could prevent proper flow of air into your home. Grab clippers in one hand and a hose in the other, and begin by clipping away any unwanted growth and rinsing off any remains of dirt.
