Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have some things you can add that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather gets hot in Madera, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out our tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and very often forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a good idea to take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and replace them when they’re dry. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and impact its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Brian’s Heating & Cooling, Inc. can help with that checklist. Having once a year AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is running at peak efficiency. It’s ideal to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be done before summer brings the heat. When you think about the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment.
