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 a mile long, but we have a handful of things that will save you some trouble and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Genoa and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this short checklist now may save you from sweating this summer. Look at Your Air Filter and Ducts Swapping your air filter makes it to almost each and every single 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 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 another 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 pulled 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 free of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can clog your system and cause it to reduce its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we come in to help you tackle that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up prolongs the life of your system and keeps it running at optimal efficiency. Spring is the best time to schedule 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 the entirety of your 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 set up your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 847-293-0047. If you’d prefer, you can also make an appointment with us online.
