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 too long, but we have a couple things that can save you some problems and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in Springfield and the last thing you want is to discover is that you’re in need of AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now may save you from sweating this summer. Check Your Air Filter and Ducts Swapping your air filter makes it to almost every one of our lists of pointers 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 comfy. This costs you more money and causes more work on the system which reduces the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are an additional piece of the puzzle that is often overlooked as well. While you're spring cleaning, pull off the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers pulled off, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and swap 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 impact your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we come in to help you work on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up lengthens the life of your system and keeps it running at top efficiency. Spring is the ideal time to set up your tune-up so any concerns 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 your entire spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to make sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long.
