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 too long, but we have a handful of things that will save you some trouble and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Moline and the last thing you want is to find out is that you’re in need of 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 every one of our lists of tips 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 cozy. This costs you more money and causes more stress on the system which diminishes the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are a separate piece of the puzzle that is often forgotten as well. While you're spring cleaning, pull 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 clear of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can impact your system and cause it to reduce 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 helps improve the life of your system and keeps it operating at optimal efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to arrange 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 minimal 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 arrange your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 309-762-3641.
