It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have several things you can add that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather gets hot in the Rio Grande Valley, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read these tips to save yourself from sweating this summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is really 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 means 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 great idea to take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, wash them if needed and replace them when they’re dry.
- Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and reduce its efficiency.
- Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C. can help with that to-do list. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay running at peak efficiency. It’s ideal 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 small investment.
