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 several things you can combine that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather gets hot in Marshalltown, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use 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 really important and commonly overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your house comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also forget 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, clean them if needed and reattach when they’re dry. Maintain Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and decrease its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where B & G HVAC can help with that spring cleaning list. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay running at peak efficiency. It’s ideal to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be done 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.
