Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have a few things you can add that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather gets hot in Rocky Mount, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read this checklist to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer. Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and very often missed by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and reattach when they’re dry. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and reduce its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Davis Heating & Air Conditioning can help with that to-do list. Having once a year AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it running at peak efficiency. It’s smart to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be completed before summer brings the heat. When you think about the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a small investment. While we may not be able to support you with all the items on your spring to-do list, we can help you with all the things that affect your home comfort. We’ll help you stay cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you want to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 540-483-5605.
