Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re pretty sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a couple things that might save you some problems and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Colorado Springs and the last thing you want is to find out is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now could save you from sweating this summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts Swapping your air filter makes it to almost each and every single of our lists of tips because it's so important and so often overlooked. If your air filter is filthy, your system will have to work harder to keep you cozy. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear which diminishes the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are an additional piece of the puzzle that is often neglected as well. While you're spring cleaning, take off the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers pulled off, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and switch 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 lower its efficiency. Set Up 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 perfect time to schedule your tune-up so any issues or AC repair that needs to be made can be addressed before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a little investment into the lifecycle of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change. We can't help you with the entirety of your spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to make sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to arrange your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 719-332-3458.
