When the weather heats up in Excelsior Springs, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out our tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and very often overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore 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. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and impact its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Colvin's Inc can help with that to-do list. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is running at peak efficiency.
