It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have some things you can combine that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather warms up in Sandpoint, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out our tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and commonly overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a wise idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and reattach when they’re dry.
- Clean 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.
- Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Age Heating & Cooling can help with that spring cleaning list. Having once a year AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it running at peak efficiency. It’s ideal to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be done before summer brings the heat. When you consider the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a nominal investment.
While we may not be able to assist you with all the chores on your spring to-do list, we can advise you with all the things that affect your home comfort. We’ll help you stay cool and comfortable throughout summer. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you are ready to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 208-578-4258.
