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 a few things you can combine that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather warms up in Opelika, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read this checklist to save yourself from sweating this summer. Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and commonly 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 unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a wise idea to pull out the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and replace them when they’re dry. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and decrease its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Farnell Mechanical, Inc. can help with that checklist. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it 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 minimal investment.
