It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have several things you can add that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather gets hot in Elk River, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use our tips to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer.
- Examine 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 you comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes undesirable 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, wash them if needed and reattach when they’re dry.
- Maintain Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and reduce its efficiency.
- Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Home Comfort Heating & Air 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 completed before summer brings the heat. When you consider the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment.
