Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re awfully sure your to-do list already feels too long, but we have a couple things that can save you some problems and keep you comfortable in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in San Dimas and the last thing you want is to find out is that you need AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now may save you from sweating this summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts Swapping your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of things to check because it's so important and so often left unaddressed. If your air filter is a mess, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfy. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear 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 switch them after they've dried. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep any outdoor units cleared of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can impact your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency. Set Up Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we step in to help you work 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 best time to arrange your tune-up so any issues or AC repair that needs to be made can be addressed before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment into the lifespan of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change. We can't help you with all 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 schedule your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 626-478-2922. If you’d prefer, you can also make an appointment with us online.
