Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re pretty sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a couple things that can save you some trouble and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in the Main Line and the last thing you want is to discover is that you’re in need of AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now could 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 forgotten. If your air filter is dirty, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfy. This costs you more money and causes more work on the system which diminishes the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are a separate 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 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 reduce its efficiency. Set Up Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we enter the picture to help you take on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up helps improve the life of your system and keeps it running at optimal efficiency. Spring is the best 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 all 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.
