Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring is here. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have several things you can combine that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather warms up in Middletown, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read this checklist to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and very often forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, wash them if needed and replace them when they’re dry. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and reduce its efficiency. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Schagrin Gas Company can help with that checklist. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is running at peak efficiency. It’s ideal to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be completed before summer brings the heat. When you look at the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a nominal investment. While we may not be able to help you with all the items on your spring to-do list, we can advise you with all the things that impact your home comfort. We’ll help you stay cool and comfortable during the warm months. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you are ready to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 302-658-2000.
