Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels a mile long, but we have a few things that will save you some trouble and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is beginning to heating up in Lincoln and the last thing you want is to find out is that you’re in need of AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now could save you from sweating this summer.
- Check Your Air Filter and Ducts
Changing your air filter makes it to almost every one of our lists of pointers 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 cozy. This costs you more money and causes more stress on the system which diminishes the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are another piece of the puzzle that is often forgotten as well. While you're spring cleaning, pull 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 clog your system and cause it to reduce its efficiency.
- Set Up Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we enter the picture to help you tackle that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up prolongs the life of your system and keeps it operating at optimal efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to set up your tune-up so any concerns or AC repair that needs to be made can be addressed before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a small investment into the lifecycle of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change.
We can't help you with your entire spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to make sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to arrange your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 402-438-7992.
