Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring is here. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have several things you can do that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather warms up in Pinellas County, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use this checklist to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and frequently overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes unnecessary 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, scrub them if needed and replace them 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 Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc can help with that checklist. 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 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 minimal investment. While we may not be able to help you with all the chores on your spring to-do list, we can help you with all the things that affect your home comfort. We’ll help you stay cool and comfortable during the warm months. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you are ready to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 727-398-5515.
