Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels too long, but we have a few things that might save you some problems and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is beginning to heating up in Wausau and the last thing you want is to discover is that you’re in need of AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now could save you from sweating this summer.
- Check Your Air Filter and Ducts
Swapping your air filter makes it to almost every one of our lists of things to check because it's so important and so often overlooked. 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 work on the system which reduces 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, 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 impact your system and cause it to lower its efficiency.
- Arrange 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 running at optimal efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to set up your tune-up so any issues or AC repair that needs to be made can be handled before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a small investment into the life 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 make sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to set up your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 715-301-0727.
