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

Spring is finally here. We’re awfully sure your to-do list already feels a mile long, but we have a couple things that will save you some problems and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Keokuk and the last thing you want is to find out is that you need AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now may save you from sweating this summer.

  1. Look at Your Air Filter and Ducts
    Swapping your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of pointers because it's so important and so often forgotten. If your air filter is dirty, your system will have to work harder to keep you cozy. This costs you more money and causes more work on the system which reduces the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are an additional piece of the puzzle that is often forgotten as well. While you're spring cleaning, take off the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers removed, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and swap them after they've dried.
  2. Clean Your Outdoor Unit
    Keep any outdoor units free of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can clog your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency.
  3. Arrange Your Annual AC Tune-Up
    This is where we enter the picture to help you tackle that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up lengthens the life of your system and keeps it running at peak efficiency. Spring is the best time to arrange your tune-up so any concerns or AC repair that needs to be made can be taken care of before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment into the lifespan of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change.

We can't help you with the entirety of your spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to ensure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to arrange your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 319-229-2318.
