Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List

Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have several things you can add that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather warms up in Rapid City, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read these tips to save yourself from sweating this summer.

  1. Inspect 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 your home comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes unnecessary 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 be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and reattach when they’re dry.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 helps it stay running at peak efficiency. It’s best 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 nominal investment.
