Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have several things you can add that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather warms up in Excelsior Springs, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out these 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 so important and frequently missed by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a wise idea to pull out the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and replace them when they’re dry.
- Clean Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and impact its efficiency.
- Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Colvin's Heating and Cooling can help with that spring cleaning list. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is running at peak efficiency. It’s smart to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be fixed before summer brings the heat. When you consider the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment.
