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 unfortunately long, but we have a few things you can combine that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather heats up in Florissant, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out this checklist to save yourself from sweating this summer. Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and very often forgotten 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 avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a wise idea to take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, wash them if needed and reattach when they’re dry. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and decrease its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where B & B Heating & Cooling can help with that checklist. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is 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 think about 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 help you with all the chores 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 throughout summer. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you want to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 314-838-9800.
