Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels a mile long, but we have a handful of things that can save you some trouble and keep you comfortable in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in Murrieta and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you need AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now may save you from sweating this summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
Swapping your air filter makes it to almost every one of our lists of pointers because it's so important and so often left unaddressed. 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 stress on the system which reduces 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, remove 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 replace them after they've dried.
- Clean Your Outdoor Unit
Keep any outdoor units clear of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can clog your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we step in to help you take on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up helps improve the life of your system and keeps it working at peak efficiency. Spring is the ideal time to schedule 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 small investment into the lifespan of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change.
We can't help you with your entire spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to ensure 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 951-299-9853.
