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 some things you can do that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather heats up in Crestview, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use this checklist to save yourself from sweating during the summer. Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and commonly 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 avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a good idea to pull out the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and reattach when they’re dry. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and reduce its efficiency. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Gordon Air Conditioning can help with that to-do list. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it running at peak efficiency. It’s ideal to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be completed 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. While we may not be able to help you with all the items on your spring to-do list, we can advise you with all the things that influence your home comfort. We’ll help you stay cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you would like to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 850-682-5509.
