Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re awfully sure your to-do list already feels a mile long, but we have a handful of things that might save you some problems and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is beginning to heating up in Auburn and the last thing you want is to find out is that you need AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now could save you from sweating this summer. Inspect 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 left unaddressed. If your air filter is dirty, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfortable. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear which reduces the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are an additional piece of the puzzle that is often forgotten as well. While you're spring cleaning, remove the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers removed, 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 clear of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can clog your system and cause it to lower its efficiency. Arrange Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we come in to help you tackle that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up lengthens the life of your system and keeps it running at peak efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to arrange your tune-up so any concerns 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 your entire 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 schedule your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 530-885-8081. If you’d prefer, you can also make an appointment with us online.
