We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have some things you can add that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather warms up in Lexington, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read our tips to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer. Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve seen 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 your house comfortable. Hard work equates to 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 take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and replace them when they’re dry. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and decrease its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where James Heating & A/C, Inc can help with that checklist. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is 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.
