Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List

April 28, 2016

Spring is finally here. We’re awfully sure your to-do list already feels too long, but we have a handful of things that can save you some trouble and keep you comfortable in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in Rocky Mount and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now may save you from sweating this summer.

  1. Check Your Air Filter and Ducts
    Swapping your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of pointers because it's so important and so often left unaddressed. If your air filter is dirty, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfortable. This costs you more money and causes more stress 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 forgotten as well. While you're spring cleaning, take 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 switch them after they've dried.
  2. Clean Your Outdoor Unit
    Keep any outdoor units cleared of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can impact your system and cause it to lower its efficiency.
  3. Schedule 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 helps improve the life of your system and keeps it working at peak 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 handled before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment into the life of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change.

We can't help you with your entire 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. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to set up your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 540-369-3790.
