Spring is finally here. We’re pretty sure your to-do list already feels a mile long, but we have a few things that might save you some trouble and keep you comfortable in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Naples and the last thing you want is to find out is that you’re in need of AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now might save you from sweating this summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
Swapping your air filter makes it to almost each and every single of our lists of tips 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 cozy. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear which diminishes the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are an additional piece of the puzzle that is often overlooked as well. While you're spring cleaning, remove 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.
- Clean Your Outdoor Unit
Keep any outdoor units free of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can clog your system and cause it to reduce its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we step in to help you take on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up prolongs the life of your system and keeps it operating at peak efficiency. Spring is the ideal 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 small investment into the lifespan of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change.
We can't help you with the entirety of your spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to be sure 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 239-244-3439.
