Spring is finally here. We’re pretty 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 Mechanicsburg and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you’re in need of AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now might 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 overlooked. If your air filter is filthy, 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 an additional piece of the puzzle that is often neglected as well. While you're spring cleaning, take off the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers removed, 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 cleared of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can impact your system and cause it to reduce 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 prolongs the life of your system and keeps it operating at top efficiency. Spring is the ideal time to arrange 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 the entirety 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 717-220-4502.
