Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have several things you can do that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather heats up in Brandon, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use our tips to save yourself from sweating this summer.
- Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and very often overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and more 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 be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and replace them when they’re dry.
- Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and decrease its efficiency.
- Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Brandon Heating and Plumbing can help with that checklist. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it running at peak efficiency. It’s ideal to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be completed before summer brings the heat. When you look at the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a small investment.
