Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have several things you can combine that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather gets hot in Beaverton, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out this checklist to save yourself from sweating during the summer. Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and commonly overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your house comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a wise idea to take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and put them back when they’re dry. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and impact its efficiency. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Garoken Energy Co. 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 best to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be completed 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.
