Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have several things you can combine that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather warms up in Paso Robles, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use these tips to save yourself from sweating this summer.
- Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and very often overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your house comfortable. Hard work equals 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 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.
- Clear Up 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.
- Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Paso Robles Heating and Air can help with that spring cleaning list. Having once a year AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is running at peak efficiency. It’s smart to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be fixed 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 small investment.
