Spring has arrived. 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 over the summer. When the weather gets hot in Rapid City, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read our tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and commonly forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore 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, clean them if needed and replace them when they’re dry.
- Maintain Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and reduce its efficiency.
- Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Street Heating and Cooling can help with that checklist. Having once a year AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is running at peak efficiency. It’s smart to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be fixed 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.
