Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring is here. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have a few things you can combine that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather warms up in Tampa Bay, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out this checklist to save yourself from sweating this summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and commonly overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work equals 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 great idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can soak the covers in mild dish soap, wash them if needed and replace them when they’re dry. Maintain Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and impact its efficiency. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Langford Cooling 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 best to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be done 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 small investment.
