Spring is finally here. We’re pretty sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a couple things that can save you some headaches and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in Brookfield and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now may save you from sweating this summer.
- Check 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 dirty, your system will have to work harder to keep you cozy. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear which diminishes the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are another 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 swap 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 inhibit your system and cause it to lower its efficiency.
- Set Up 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 best 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 little investment into the lifecycle 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 203-357-5913.
