Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a handful of things that can save you some headaches and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Troy and the last thing you want is to find out 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 pointers 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 cozy. This costs you more money and causes more work on the system which decreases 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 removed, 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 impact your system and cause it to reduce its efficiency.
- Set Up Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we step in to help you work on 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 perfect time to schedule your tune-up so any problems or AC repair that needs to be made can be addressed before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment into the lifecycle 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 make sure 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 937-558-9478.
