Spring 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 problems and keep you comfortable in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in Auburn 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.
- 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 work on the system which decreases the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are another piece of the puzzle that is often overlooked as well. While you're spring cleaning, remove 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 swap 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 inhibit your system and cause it to reduce its efficiency.
- Set Up Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we enter the picture to help you take on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up prolongs the life of your system and keeps it operating at top efficiency. Spring is the best time to set up your tune-up so any problems or AC repair that needs to be made can be addressed 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 the entirety 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 arrange your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 530-885-8081.
