Spring is finally here. We’re pretty sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a couple things that will save you some trouble and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Branchville and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you need 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 a mess, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfy. 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 neglected 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 cleared of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can clog 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 helps improve the life of your system and keeps it working at optimal efficiency. Spring is the best time to arrange your tune-up so any issues or AC repair that needs to be made can be addressed before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a small investment into the life 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 862-345-6896.
