Spring is finally here. We’re pretty sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a handful of things that will save you some headaches and keep you comfortable in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in Kutztown and the last thing you want is to discover is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now may save you from sweating this summer.
- Check Your Air Filter and Ducts
Swapping your air filter makes it to almost every one of our lists of pointers because it's so important and so often left unaddressed. If your air filter is filthy, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfy. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear which decreases the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are a separate piece of the puzzle that is often neglected as well. While you're spring cleaning, take 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 replace 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 impact your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we step in to help you tackle that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up helps improve the life of your system and keeps it working at top efficiency. Spring is the ideal 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 little 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 schedule your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 484-646-3363.
