Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring is here. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have a few things you can do that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather heats up in Erie, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out these tips to save yourself from sweating this summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and commonly forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and more 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 pull out the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can 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 block your system and impact its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Patterson & Stirling Inc can help with that to-do list. Having once a year AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it running at peak efficiency. It’s best to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be done 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.
