Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have some things you can add that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather heats up in Plainfield, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use our tips to save yourself from sweating this summer. Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and frequently forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your house comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes avoidable 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 you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and replace them when they’re dry. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and reduce its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where PWA Heating & Cooling Inc can help with that spring cleaning list. Having annual 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 fixed 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 nominal investment. While we may not be able to help you with all the chores on your spring to-do list, we can advise you with all the things that impact your home comfort. We’ll help you stay cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you want to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 815-768-6656.
