Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have several things you can do that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather warms up in Rapid City, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read this checklist to save yourself from sweating this summer. Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and frequently missed by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a good idea to take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to 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 at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and impact its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Street Heating & Sheet Metal Inc can help with that checklist. Having once a year AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it 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 look at the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment. While we may not be able to support you with all the items on your spring to-do list, we can help you with all the things that affect 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 would like to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 605-342-5107.
