Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring is here. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have a few things you can add that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather warms up in the Upper Rio Grande Valley, 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 so important and frequently forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes undesirable 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 you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and reattach when they’re dry. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and decrease its efficiency. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Cytech Heating & Cooling can help with that spring cleaning list. Having yearly 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 fixed before summer brings the heat. When you consider the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment.
