Spring is here. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have some things you can combine that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather heats up in Marshalltown, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use our 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 forgotten 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 additional money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a good idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and reattach when they’re dry.
- Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and decrease its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where B & G HVAC can help with that checklist. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is running at peak efficiency. It’s best to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be completed before summer brings the heat. When you consider the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a small investment.
