Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have some things you can combine that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather warms up in West Palm Beach, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use these tips to save yourself from sweating this summer. Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and very often forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your house comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a wise 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 replace them when they’re dry. Maintain Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and decrease its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Hopkins Air Conditioning, Inc. 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 look at the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a small investment.
