We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have some things you can do that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather gets hot in Colfax, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use these tips to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer. Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and frequently forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a good idea to pull out the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, wash them if needed and put them back when they’re dry. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and impact its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Ackerman Heating & Air Conditioning can help with that checklist. Having annual 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 done before summer brings the heat. When you consider the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a nominal investment.
