When the weather gets hot in Aurora, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read our tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer. Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and frequently overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a wise idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, wash them if needed and reattach when they’re dry. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and reduce its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Service Plus Mechanical can help with that checklist. Having once a year AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it running at peak efficiency. It’s smart to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be completed before summer brings the heat. When you think about the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a nominal investment.
