Spring is here. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have several things you can do that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather warms up in Carpentersville, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use our tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and commonly forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a wise idea to take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and put them back when they’re dry.
- Maintain Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and impact its efficiency.
- Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Controlled Comfort HVAC 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 smart 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 small investment.
