Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels too long, but we have a handful of things that might save you some headaches and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Beaverton and the last thing you want is to discover is that you need AC repair. Going through this short checklist now could save you from sweating this summer. Check Your Air Filter and Ducts Swapping your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of pointers because it's so important and so often forgotten. 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 decreases the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are another piece of the puzzle that is often neglected as well. While you're spring cleaning, take off the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers taken 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 inhibit your system and cause it to lower its efficiency. Arrange Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we step in to help you tackle that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up lengthens the life of your system and keeps it operating at optimal efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to schedule 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 little investment into the life of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change. We can't help you with your entire 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.
