Spring is here. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have a few things you can add that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather gets hot in Genoa, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read our tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and commonly missed by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your house comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and replace them when they’re dry.
- Maintain Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and decrease its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Assured Appliance and Heating & Air 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 ideal to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be done before summer brings the heat. When you think about 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 tasks on your spring to-do list, we can advise you with all the things that affect 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 want to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 847-306-8990.
