Spring is here. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have several things you can add that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather heats up in Bishop, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use our tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and commonly forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and reattach when they’re dry.
- Clean Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and decrease its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning can help with that checklist. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is running at peak efficiency. It’s best to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be completed before summer brings the heat. When you consider the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment.
