Spring is finally here. We’re awfully sure your to-do list already feels too long, but we have a few things that might save you some problems and keep you comfortable in the months to come. The weather is beginning to heating up in Lake Worth 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 may save you from sweating this summer.
- Inspect 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 left unaddressed. If your air filter is dirty, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfy. This costs you more money and causes more stress on the system which reduces 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 cleared of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can inhibit your system and cause it to lower its efficiency.
- Set Up 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 helps improve the life of your system and keeps it operating at optimal efficiency. Spring is the best time to set up 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 minimal investment into the life 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 make sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to set up your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 561-533-6066 .
