Spring is finally here. We’re awfully sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a handful of things that might save you some problems and keep you comfortable in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Alliance and the last thing you want is to discover is that you need AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now may save you from sweating this summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
Swapping your air filter makes it to almost each and every single of our lists of things to check because it's so important and so often overlooked. If your air filter is dirty, 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 forgotten as well. While you're spring cleaning, pull off the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers taken off, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and switch 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 clog your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency.
- Arrange Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we come in to help you take on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up lengthens the life of your system and keeps it running at optimal efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to schedule your tune-up so any concerns or AC repair that needs to be made can be addressed before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a little investment into the lifecycle of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change.
We can't help you with all 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 set up your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 308-321-4703.
