Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have several things you can do that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather gets hot in Longview, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out this checklist 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 extremely 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 undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also overlook 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, scrub them if needed and reattach when they’re dry. Maintain Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and impact its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Ben Maines Air Conditioning, Inc. can help with that spring cleaning list. Having once a year AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is 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.
