Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re awfully sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a few things that might save you some headaches and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is beginning to heating up in Northwest Arkansas and the last thing you want is to find out is that you need AC repair. Going through this short checklist now could save you from sweating this summer. Look at Your Air Filter and Ducts Swapping your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of things to check because it's so important and so often left unaddressed. If your air filter is a mess, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfy. This costs you more money and causes more stress on the system which decreases the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are another piece of the puzzle that is often neglected as well. While you're spring cleaning, remove the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers pulled off, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and replace them after they've dried. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep any outdoor units clear of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can impact your system and cause it to reduce its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we enter the picture to help you take on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up prolongs the life of your system and keeps it running at optimal efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to arrange your tune-up so any problems or AC repair that needs to be made can be addressed before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a little investment into the life 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 be sure 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 479-372-4304. If you’d prefer, you can also make an appointment with us online.
