Central Air Conditioning
Close air distribution registers (if not used for heating)
NOTE: The tasks and timings shown here for your Central Air Conditioning are based on a single-family home (owned), located in Massachusetts, United States, with priority set at ‘1 star' or higher, for all possible goals.
If you set your personalization differently in your Home Wizard app, then you may get reminders for different tasks and timings in your recommended home care program for your Central Air Conditioning.
Air distribution registers are the duct openings on your walls, floors or ceiling where the cold air conditioning air comes out. These registers typically have a lever or wheel that allows the register to be opened and closed.
After your air conditioning system has been shut down for the season, these registers should be closed. They should be opened again before you start up the system in the Spring.
Make sure the registers are not blocked by furniture, carpeting, or drapes.
