It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have some things you can do that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather warms up in Franklin, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out our tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Examine 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 house 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 great idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can 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 obstruct your system and decrease its efficiency.
- Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Winters Heating and Cooling can help with that spring cleaning list. Having yearly 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 fixed 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 nominal investment.
