Spring is here. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have a few things you can combine that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather heats up in Los Angeles, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use our tips to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer.
- Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and very often forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a good idea to remove 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.
- Clean Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and decrease its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where AZ Air Conditioning and Heating can help with that checklist. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it running at peak efficiency. It’s smart 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.
