It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have some things you can add that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather gets hot in Derby, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use this checklist to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and very often overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your house comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to remove 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.
- 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.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning can help with that spring cleaning list. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it running at peak efficiency. It’s smart to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be completed before summer brings the heat. When you think about the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a small investment.
