It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have several things you can combine that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather gets hot in Pella, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out our tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and very often 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 additional money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to pull out the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can soak the covers in mild dish soap, wash them if needed and put them back when they’re dry.
- Clean Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and decrease its efficiency.
- Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating can help with that to-do list. 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 fixed before summer brings the heat. When you think about the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a small investment.
