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 trouble and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is beginning to heating up in Abilene and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you’re in need of AC repair. Going through this short checklist now might save you from sweating this summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
Swapping your air filter makes it to almost every one of our lists of things to check because it's so important and so often overlooked. If your air filter is filthy, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfortable. 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 an additional piece of the puzzle that is often forgotten as well. While you're spring cleaning, remove the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers removed, 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 clear 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 step in to help you take on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up prolongs the life of your system and keeps it working at peak efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to set up your tune-up so any issues or AC repair that needs to be made can be addressed 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 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 arrange your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 325-200-4667.
