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 likely long, but we have a few things you can combine that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather gets hot in Olathe, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read 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 missed by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to pull out 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. Maintain Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and reduce its efficiency. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning can help with that spring cleaning list. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is running at peak efficiency.
