Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels too long, but we have a couple things that will save you some trouble and keep you comfortable in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in Ridgedale and the Branson area and the last thing you want is to find out is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now might save you from sweating this summer. Check Your Air Filter and Ducts Swapping your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of pointers because it's so important and so often forgotten. If your air filter is dirty, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfy. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear which reduces the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are a separate piece of the puzzle that is often overlooked as well. While you're spring cleaning, remove the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers pulled off, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and replace them after they've dried. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep any outdoor units free of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can clog your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we step in to help you work on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up lengthens the life of your system and keeps it running at optimal efficiency. Spring is the best time to set up your tune-up so any issues or AC repair that needs to be made can be addressed before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a little investment into the life of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change. We can't help you with the entirety of your spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to be sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to set up your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 417-544-4430. If you’d prefer, you can also make an appointment with us online.
