Spring is finally here. We’re pretty sure your to-do list already feels a mile long, but we have a handful of things that can save you some trouble and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in Rock Hill and the last thing you want is to find out is that you’re in need of AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now might save you from sweating this summer.
- Look at Your Air Filter and Ducts
Swapping your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of things to check because it's so important and so often forgotten. If your air filter is filthy, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfortable. 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 an additional piece of the puzzle that is often neglected as well. While you're spring cleaning, take off the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers pulled 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 free of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can inhibit your system and cause it to lower its efficiency.
- Arrange Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we step in 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 arrange your tune-up so any problems or AC repair that needs to be made can be taken care of before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a little investment into the life 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 803-220-0761.
