Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re awfully sure your to-do list already feels a mile long, but we have a handful of things that might save you some trouble and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is beginning to heating up in Utica and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you’re in need of AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now might save you from sweating this summer. Check Your Air Filter and Ducts Changing your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of tips because it's so important and so often left unaddressed. If your air filter is dirty, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfortable. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear which reduces the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are an additional piece of the puzzle that is often overlooked as well. While you're spring cleaning, take off the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers taken 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 cleared of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can impact your system and cause it to lower its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we enter the picture to help you work on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up lengthens the life of your system and keeps it operating at optimal efficiency. Spring is the best time to set up your tune-up so any concerns or AC repair that needs to be made can be handled before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a little investment into the lifecycle 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 be sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long.
