Spring is finally here. We’re awfully sure your to-do list already feels too long, but we have a few things that might save you some headaches and keep you comfortable in the months to come. The weather is beginning to heating up in Saint Petersburg and the last thing you want is to discover is that you’re in need of AC repair. Going through this short checklist now could save you from sweating this summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
Changing your air filter makes it to almost each and every single of our lists of things to check because it's so important and so often forgotten. If your air filter is filthy, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfy. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear which decreases the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are a separate piece of the puzzle that is often overlooked as well. While you're spring cleaning, pull off the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers removed, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and swap 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 reduce its efficiency.
- Arrange Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we come in to help you take on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up lengthens the life of your system and keeps it working at peak efficiency. Spring is the best time to arrange your tune-up so any problems or AC repair that needs to be made can be handled before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment into the life of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change.
We can't help you with all of your spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to be sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to schedule your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 727-369-6195.
