Spring is finally here. We’re awfully sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a few things that might save you some problems and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is beginning to heating up in Litchfield Park and the last thing you want is to find out is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now may save you from sweating this summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
Changing your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of things to check 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 stress on the system which reduces 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, take 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 swap 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 inhibit your system and cause it to decrease 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 prolongs the life of your system and keeps it operating at top efficiency. Spring is the best time to schedule your tune-up so any concerns or AC repair that needs to be made can be handled before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment into the life 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 be 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 623-208-6444.
