Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have a few things you can combine that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather heats up in Moline, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use these tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and very often missed by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a good idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and put them back when they’re dry.
- Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and reduce its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Freed Heating & Air Conditioning can help with that checklist. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is running at peak efficiency. It’s smart to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be completed before summer brings the heat. When you look at the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment.
