Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a few things that might save you some trouble and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in Boynton Beach and the last thing you want is to find out is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now might save you from sweating this summer.
- Look at Your Air Filter and Ducts
Changing your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of pointers because it's so important and so often overlooked. If your air filter is a mess, your system will have to work harder to keep you cozy. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear which diminishes the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are another piece of the puzzle that is often forgotten as well. While you're spring cleaning, remove the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers taken off, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and switch them after they've dried.
- Clean Your Outdoor Unit
Keep any outdoor units free of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can impact your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we enter the picture to help you tackle that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up prolongs the life of your system and keeps it running at top efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to schedule your tune-up so any problems or AC repair that needs to be made can be addressed before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment into the lifespan of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change.
We can't help you with the entirety of your spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to make sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to set up your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 561-270-6228.
