Spring is finally here. We’re pretty sure your to-do list already feels a mile long, but we have a handful of things that will save you some trouble and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Naples and the last thing you want is to discover is that you need AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now may save you from sweating this summer.
- Inspect 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 overlooked. If your air filter is filthy, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfy. 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 an additional piece of the puzzle that is often forgotten as well. While you're spring cleaning, pull 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 swap 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 clog your system and cause it to lower its efficiency.
- Arrange Your Annual AC Tune-Up
This is where we enter the picture 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 ideal time to set up your tune-up so any problems or AC repair that needs to be made can be handled before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a small investment into the life of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change.
We can't help you with the entirety of your spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to ensure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to set up your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 239-241-5318.
