Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have several things you can combine that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather gets hot in Augusta, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use our tips to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and very often overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a wise idea to take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, wash them if needed and reattach when they’re dry. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and decrease its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where McCune Heating & Cooling can help with that to-do list. Having once a year AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay running at peak efficiency. It’s best to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be done before summer brings the heat. When you look at the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment.
