Spring is finally here. We’re awfully sure your to-do list already feels too long, but we have a handful of things that can save you some trouble and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Hodgenville and the last thing you want is to find out is that you need AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now may save you from sweating this summer.
- Inspect 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 dirty, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfy. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear which diminishes 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, pull 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 inhibit your system and cause it to reduce its efficiency.
- Set Up 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 lengthens the life of your system and keeps it working at peak efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to arrange your tune-up so any concerns or AC repair that needs to be made can be addressed before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a small investment into the life 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 make sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to schedule your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 270-358-3167.
