Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring is here. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have some things you can do that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather warms up in Thousand Oaks, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use this checklist 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 really important and frequently overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your house comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a good idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and replace them 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 obstruct your system and decrease its efficiency. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Air Max HVAC Inc can help with that to-do list. Having yearly 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 completed before summer brings the heat. When you consider the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a nominal investment.
