While you may not actually use your air conditioner during the fall months, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t keep tabs on the system. Certain events during the mild-weather months could have an impact on the unit’s ability to run properly next spring or summer.
Dust or Pollen Could Clog an Air Filter
There is a chance that dust, pollen or other debris in the air could clog an air filter during the months of September or October. If you haven’t changed your air conditioner’s air filter in the past 90 days, it may be worth doing so even if you don’t plan on using it. Depending on how much debris gets in the unit during the fall, it may be necessary to change the air filter again during the spring.
The folks at Kayl Heating & Air in Doniphan, NE, can help you complete this and other tasks. We may also be able to take other steps in an effort to help maintain or repair your HVAC system.
Larger Debris Could Get Inside of an AC Unit
There is a chance that sticks, leaves or other large debris can fall into a condenser unit during the fall season. These objects could damage the unit itself or components needed to operate your air conditioner in a safe and efficient manner. Ideally, you should check the unit every few days or few weeks to ensure that it is not in need of repair work. It may be a good idea to cover your air conditioner with a tarp or piece of cardboard to protect it from tree branches or small animals.
