Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels too long, but we have a couple things that can save you some trouble and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in Perry and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this short checklist now could save you from sweating this summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
Changing your air filter makes it to almost each and every single of our lists of pointers because it's so important and so often overlooked. If your air filter is filthy, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfortable. This costs you more money and causes more work on the system which diminishes the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are another piece of the puzzle that is often neglected as well. While you're spring cleaning, remove the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers pulled off, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and replace them after they've dried.
- Clean Your Outdoor Unit
Keep any outdoor units clear of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can impact your system and cause it to lower its efficiency.
- Set Up Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we enter the picture to help you tackle that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up lengthens the life of your system and keeps it working at peak efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to arrange your tune-up so any issues or AC repair that needs to be made can be taken care of before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment into the lifespan of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change.
We can't help you with the entirety of your spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to make sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to arrange your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 478-202-3076.
