Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List

Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels too long, but we have a handful of things that can save you some headaches and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is beginning to heating up in Hickory and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now might save you from sweating this summer.

  1. Check Your Air Filter and Ducts
    Swapping your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of tips because it's so important and so often overlooked. If your air filter is a mess, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfy. This costs you more money and causes more stress on the system which decreases the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are a separate piece of the puzzle that is often neglected as well. While you're spring cleaning, remove 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 switch them after they've dried.
  2. Clean Your Outdoor Unit
    Keep any outdoor units cleared of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can inhibit your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency.
  3. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
    This is where we come in to help you take on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up prolongs the life of your system and keeps it operating at optimal efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to set up your tune-up so any concerns or AC repair that needs to be made can be addressed before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a little investment into the lifecycle of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change.

We can't help you with all of your spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to be sure 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 828-283-0369.
