Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have a few things you can add that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather gets hot in Chelan and Wenatchee, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read our tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and very often missed 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 good idea to pull out the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and reattach when they’re dry.
- Maintain Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and decrease its efficiency.
- Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Lakeside Heating & Air can help with that spring cleaning list. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay running at peak efficiency. It’s ideal to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be fixed 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.
While we may not be able to help you with all the items 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 during the warm months. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you want to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 509-284-4265.
