Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring 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 headaches and keep you comfortable in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Orange County and the last thing you want is to uncover is that you need AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now may save you from sweating this summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts Changing your air filter makes it to almost every one of our lists of things to check because it's so important and so often forgotten. If your air filter is filthy, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfortable. This costs you more money and causes more work on the system which reduces the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are another piece of the puzzle that is often forgotten as well. While you're spring cleaning, take off the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers pulled off, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and replace them after they've dried. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep any outdoor units cleared of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can impact your system and cause it to lower its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we enter the picture to help you work on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up helps improve the life of your system and keeps it running at peak efficiency. Spring is the best 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 little investment into the lifespan 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 ensure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to arrange your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 949-525-9119. If you’d prefer, you can also make an appointment with us online.
