Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring is here. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have some things you can combine that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather heats up in Springfield, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read these tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer. Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and frequently overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to pull out the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and reattach when they’re dry. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and reduce its efficiency. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Bormida Mechanical Services Inc can help with that to-do list.
