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. Use these tips to save yourself from sweating this summer.
- Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and very often missed 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 extra money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a good 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 reduce its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Garoken Energy Co. Inc. can help with that checklist. Having yearly 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 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.
