Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring is here. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have a few things you can do that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather heats up in the Main Line, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read this checklist to save yourself from sweating during the summer. Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and commonly overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can soak the covers in mild dish soap, wash them if needed and reattach when they’re dry. Maintain Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and decrease its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning can help with that to-do list. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay running at peak efficiency. It’s best to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be done before summer brings the heat. When you consider the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment. While we may not be able to support you with all the tasks on your spring to-do list, we can provide service to you with all the things that affect your home comfort. We’ll help you stay cool and comfortable throughout summer. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you want to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 610-626-2540.
