Spring is here. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have a few things you can do that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather gets hot in Plainfield, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out our tips to save yourself from sweating this summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and commonly overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a great 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 replace them when they’re dry.
- Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and impact its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where PWA Heating & Cooling Inc can help with that spring cleaning list. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay running at peak efficiency. It’s ideal to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be fixed before summer brings the heat. When you look at the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a small investment.
