Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels a mile long, but we have a couple things that can save you some headaches and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in Wisconsin Rapids and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you need AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now might save you from sweating this summer.
- Check Your Air Filter and Ducts
Swapping your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of tips because it's so important and so often forgotten. If your air filter is filthy, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfy. This costs you more money and causes more stress on the system which diminishes the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are an additional piece of the puzzle that is often overlooked as well. While you're spring cleaning, pull off 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 replace 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 decrease its efficiency.
- Arrange Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we step in to help you tackle that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up prolongs the life of your system and keeps it running at optimal efficiency. Spring is the ideal time to arrange your tune-up so any problems or AC repair that needs to be made can be handled before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a small investment into the life 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 be 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 715-301-0256.
