Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have several things you can do that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather warms up in Laguna Niguel, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use our tips to save yourself from sweating this summer.
- Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and commonly forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your house comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a good idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, wash them if needed and reattach when they’re dry.
- Maintain Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and reduce its efficiency.
- Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating can help with that to-do list. 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 done before summer brings the heat. When you consider the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a nominal investment.
While we may not be able to support you with all the tasks on your spring to-do list, we can help you with all the things that influence your home comfort. We’ll help you stay cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you are ready to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 949-317-4175.
