Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have some things you can do that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather warms up in Lake Forest, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use our tips to save yourself from sweating this summer.
- Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and commonly overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a good idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and reattach when they’re dry.
- Clean Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and decrease its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. can help with that checklist. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay 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 look at the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a nominal investment.
