Preparing your home for the spring in Franklin & South Indy can involve many things; putting your winter clothes back in storage, buying some seeds for a vegetable garden, and don’t forget about ensuring your air conditioner is prepped for the warmer season. Annual air conditioner service from Winters Heating and Cooling will assure that your home is fit for spring, but don’t stop there – here are several other tips that will keep you comfortable:

  1. Unblock air vents and registers.
    While you are relocating furniture around for the spring season, possibly even bringing the patio furniture outdoors, don’t forget to confirm that your cooling vents are not blocked. Especially after a rough winter, debris and dust can increase your energy bills and make your system operate harder than it would need to.
  2. Change your air filters.
    Before you switch the thermostat setting from “heat” to “cool,” check to ensure your air filters are not dirty. Unclean filters can hinder the lifespan of your system and even lower the quality of air in your residence, resulting in a negative affect on your health.
  3. Schedule AC Service
    Spring is a great time in Franklin & South Indy to get your air conditioner examined because it’s near your system’s peak time of operation. Our team at Winters Heating and Cooling will conduct a thorough review of your unit and make sure you are ready for the warm temps ahead. You surely don’t want your air conditioner to shutdown on the hottest day of the year, so keeping proactive about your unit’s maintenance can make the world of difference before it’s too late.

Stay comfortable as the days get hotter and longer this spring.
