Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re pretty sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a few things that might save you some headaches and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in Pacheco and the last thing you want is to discover is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now might save you from sweating this summer. Look at Your Air Filter and Ducts Swapping your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of things to check 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 stress on the system which reduces the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are a separate piece of the puzzle that is often overlooked as well. While you're spring cleaning, remove the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers pulled off, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and switch them after they've dried. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep any outdoor units clear of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can inhibit your system and cause it to lower its efficiency. Arrange Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we come in to help you take on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up lengthens the life of your system and keeps it running at top efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to schedule your tune-up so any issues or AC repair that needs to be made can be handled 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 all of your spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to ensure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to set up your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 925-689-7017.
