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 likely long, but we have several things you can do that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather heats up in East Peoria, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use these tips to save yourself from sweating this summer. Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and very often 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 additional money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a wise idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and put them back when they’re dry. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and impact its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC can help with that checklist. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it 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 nominal investment.
