Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels a mile long, but we have a couple things that can save you some headaches and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Hudsonville and the last thing you want is to discover is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this short checklist now could save you from sweating this summer.
- Look at Your Air Filter and Ducts
Swapping 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 dirty, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfortable. 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 neglected as well. While you're spring cleaning, remove 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 clear of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can clog your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we enter the picture to help you take on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up helps improve the life of your system and keeps it working at top efficiency. Spring is the best time to schedule your tune-up so any issues or AC repair that needs to be made can be handled before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a small investment into the lifespan 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. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to schedule your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at (616) 669-3961.
