It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have a few things you can do that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather heats up in Rapid City, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use this checklist to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and frequently forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a wise idea to remove 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.
- 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 Precision Mechanical can help with that checklist. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay 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 small investment.
