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 will save you some headaches and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in McMurray 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 Changing your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of tips because it's so important and so often overlooked. If your air filter is a mess, your system will have to work harder to keep you cozy. This costs you more money and causes more work on the system which reduces the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are a separate piece of the puzzle that is often neglected as well. While you're spring cleaning, remove 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 replace them after they've dried. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep any outdoor units cleared of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can inhibit your system and cause it to reduce its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we step in to help you work on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up prolongs the life of your system and keeps it working at top efficiency. Spring is the best time to set up your tune-up so any concerns or AC repair that needs to be made can be addressed before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a minimal 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 ensure 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 724-745-7404. If you’d prefer, you can also make an appointment with us online.
