Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have a few things you can add that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather heats up in Monroe, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read these tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and very often forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a good idea to take off 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 at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and reduce its efficiency.
- Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Lanz Furnace and Fireplace can help with that to-do list. Having once a year AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is running at peak efficiency. It’s ideal 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 small investment.
