Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels a mile long, but we have a few things that can save you some headaches and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Middletown and the last thing you want is to discover is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now may save you from sweating this summer.
- Look at Your Air Filter and Ducts
Changing your air filter makes it to almost every one of our lists of things to check because it's so important and so often forgotten. If your air filter is a mess, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfy. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear which reduces the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are an additional 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 switch 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 clog your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency.
- Arrange 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 prolongs the life of your system and keeps it running at top efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to arrange your tune-up so any issues or AC repair that needs to be made can be taken care of before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a small investment into the life 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 ensure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to set up your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 302-231-1380.
