It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have some things you can combine that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather warms up in Bend, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read our tips to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer.
- Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and frequently overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes undesirable 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, wash them if needed and reattach when they’re dry.
- Clean Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and decrease its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Tri County Climate Control LLC can help with that spring cleaning list. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it running at peak efficiency. It’s best to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be completed 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.
