It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have several things you can do that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather heats up in Erie, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read our tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and very often overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore 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, wash them if needed and put them back when they’re dry.
- Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and impact its efficiency.
- Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Patterson & Stirling 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 smart to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be done 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 small investment.
