Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re pretty sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a couple things that will save you some trouble and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Homer Glen and the last thing you want is to discover is that you need AC repair. Going through this short checklist now may save you from sweating this summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts Changing your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of tips because it's so important and so often overlooked. 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 decreases 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, remove 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 switch 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 clog your system and cause it to reduce its efficiency. Arrange Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we enter the picture 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 schedule your tune-up so any problems or AC repair that needs to be made can be handled before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a small 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 set up your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 708-301-0170. If you’d prefer, you can also make an appointment with us online.
