Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re awfully sure your to-do list already feels too long, but we have a few things that can save you some problems and keep you comfortable in the months to come. The weather is beginning to heating up in Lexington and the last thing you want is to find out is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now might save you from sweating this summer. Look at Your Air Filter and Ducts Swapping your air filter makes it to almost every one of our lists of tips because it's so important and so often overlooked. If your air filter is dirty, your system will have to work harder to keep you cozy. This costs you more money and causes more work on the system which decreases the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are an additional piece of the puzzle that is often forgotten as well. While you're spring cleaning, remove the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers taken 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 clog your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency. Set Up Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we enter the picture to help you take on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up prolongs the life of your system and keeps it operating at top efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to set up your tune-up so any problems or AC repair that needs to be made can be taken care of 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 all 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.
