Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a handful of things that might save you some headaches and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Alice and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you need AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now could save you from sweating this summer.
- Check Your Air Filter and Ducts
Changing your air filter makes it to almost each and every single of our lists of tips because it's so important and so often left unaddressed. 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 work on the system which reduces the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are a separate piece of the puzzle that is often overlooked 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 swap 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 impact your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency.
- Set Up Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we come in to help you work 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 ideal 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 little 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 be 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 361-265-4371.
