Spring is here. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have several things you can do that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather heats up in Des Moines, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use our tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and very often forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to pull out the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can 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 distant from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and impact its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling can help with that checklist. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it 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 think about the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment.
