It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have some things you can do that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather gets hot in Jefferson City, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use our tips to save yourself from sweating this summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and commonly overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should 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 distant from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and reduce its efficiency.
- Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Stieferman Heating Company Inc can help with that checklist. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is running at peak efficiency. It’s smart to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be fixed before summer brings the heat. When you look at the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a small investment.
