Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have some things you can add that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather warms up in Pacheco, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use these tips to save yourself from sweating this summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and commonly overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your house comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a wise idea to pull out the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to 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 obstruct your system and reduce its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Clean Air HVAC can help with that to-do list. Having annual 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 nominal investment.
