Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels a mile long, but we have a few things that can save you some trouble and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is beginning to heating up in Olathe and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you need AC repair. Going through this quick 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 things to check because it's so important and so often overlooked. If your air filter is filthy, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfortable. This costs you more money and causes more work 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 neglected as well. While you're spring cleaning, pull off the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers pulled off, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and replace them after they've dried. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep any outdoor units clear of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can clog your system and cause it to reduce its efficiency. Set Up Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we enter the picture to help you work on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up lengthens the life of your system and keeps it working at optimal efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to arrange your tune-up so any concerns or AC repair that needs to be made can be taken care of before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a little investment into the lifecycle 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 be sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long.
