Spring is here. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have a few things you can add that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather warms up in Magnolia, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read this checklist to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and very often 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 undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a good idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and put them back 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 JTech Mechanical can help with that spring cleaning list. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay running at peak efficiency. It’s best to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be completed 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 minimal investment.
