Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re awfully sure your to-do list already feels a mile long, but we have a few things that will save you some headaches and keep you comfortable in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Locust and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now could save you from sweating this summer. Look at Your Air Filter and Ducts Swapping your air filter makes it to almost every one of our lists of pointers because it's so important and so often overlooked. If your air filter is a mess, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfortable. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear 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, pull off the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers pulled 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 free of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can inhibit your system and cause it to reduce its efficiency. Set Up 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 prolongs the life of your system and keeps it running at optimal efficiency. Spring is the best time to schedule your tune-up so any concerns 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 life of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change. We can't help you with your entire 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 704-485-5506. If you’d prefer, you can also make an appointment with us online.
