Spring is finally here. We’re pretty sure your to-do list already feels a mile long, but we have a couple things that will save you some headaches and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Ellsworth and the last thing you want is to discover is that you’re in need of 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 tips because it's so important and so often forgotten. If your air filter is dirty, your system will have to work harder to keep you cozy. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear which decreases the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are an additional 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 replace 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 reduce its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we step in to help you tackle that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up helps improve the life of your system and keeps it operating at optimal efficiency. Spring is the ideal 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 small 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 set up your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 715-318-6728.
