Spring is finally here. We’re pretty sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a few things that will save you some trouble and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Bloomfield and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you’re in need of AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now might save you from sweating this summer.
- Check Your Air Filter and Ducts
Swapping your air filter makes it to almost every one of our lists of tips because it's so important and so often left unaddressed. 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 diminishes the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are another piece of the puzzle that is often overlooked 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 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 lower its efficiency.
- Arrange Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we enter the picture to help you work on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up prolongs the life of your system and keeps it operating at peak efficiency. Spring is the ideal time to set up 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 all of your spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to ensure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to schedule your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 812-825-8695.
