Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a handful of things that can save you some headaches and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Hudsonville and the last thing you want is to find out is that you need AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now may save you from sweating this summer. Check Your Air Filter and Ducts Changing your air filter makes it to almost each and every single of our lists of things to check because it's so important and so often overlooked. If your air filter is filthy, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfy. This costs you more money and causes more work on the system which diminishes the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are a separate 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 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 clog your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency. Set Up Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we step in to help you tackle 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 perfect time to arrange your tune-up so any issues 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 lifecycle of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change. We can't help you with the entirety 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.
