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 a few things you can add that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather heats up in Keokuk, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out these tips to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer. Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and very often overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your house comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes undesirable 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 put them back 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 restrict your system and reduce its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where WM J Kraus & Son can help with that to-do list. Having once a year 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 fixed 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.
