We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have a few things you can do that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather heats up in Utica, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use our tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and frequently overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a wise idea to take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, wash them if needed and reattach when they’re dry. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and reduce its efficiency. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Main Heating & Cooling, Inc. can help with that checklist. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay 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 small investment.
