Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and commonly missed by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to pull out 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. Maintain Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and impact its efficiency. Make an Appointment for 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 maintains it so it is running at peak efficiency. It’s best to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be done before summer brings the heat.
